In one or both upper limbs, achieve elbow flexion and shoulder extension.
- Shoulder lateral rotation.
- Shoulder horizontal abduction.
Mostly done with wrist extension but can also be performed with a neutral wrist (flexion/extension). But always with:
The subject pushes itself away from the object or surface the force is applied to.
While in a horizontal position, achieve isometric extension or flexion in the vertebrae, hip, knee, ankle, foot digits.
Isometric lateral flexion of the vertebrae is also possible.
In one limb, achieve flexion in two joints, the hip, and knee. In the other limb, achieve flexion in four joints, the hip, knee, ankle (dorsiflexion), and foot digits extension.
AKA: Stiff legged hip hinge
Achieve flexion in one joint, the hip.
In both limbs, achieve flexion in three joints, the ankle (dorsiflexion), knee, and hip.
Start position: Standing upright
End position: Squatting
