Long springs with loops, springs attached to slider bar approximately half way up
supine hands holding upright, legs extended feet in loops.
scissors – alternate hip flexion and extension in full range exhale and inhale with alternating movement –
walking – alternative hip flexion and extension in small range.
fluttering feet arc the legs up and down.

bicycle – alternate bicycle like motion of the legs – exhale and inhale with alternating movement –
frogs legs – externally rotated heels together flex and extend knees maintaining heels together exhale as legs move away from body.
Modify spring height to change tension – hips in parallel, internal/external rotation arms by sides for increased challenge
axial elongation – hip disassociation neutral pelvic position lower extremity alignment integration of ribs with pelvis
rotation of the pelvis hyperextension of lumbar spine overuse of glutes, flaring ribs
Glutes, abductors, adductors, abdominals,
Core stability, weakness pelvic girdle → antalgic gait
