Alternating Knee Fold

VIDEO CREDIT: Restore353

The alternating knee fold is an exercise that strengthens the pelvis in a neutral position and promotes femoral drop and glide and hip differentiation. This is the ability to allow the head of the femur to move efficiently in and out of the socket without having to move the pelvis. Exhale; draw the abdominals towards the spine as you flex one hip to 90 degrees, into a table top position. Inhale to hold the leg in that top position. Exhale, extend the hip, lowering the leg back to the starting position. Repeat the movement pattern with the other leg. Alternate the movement with each leg, while trying to maintain a neutral pelvis.
