“One knee up, one knee down” exercise
- Make sure the two knees are going in othrogonal directions beside one knee going up, and one knee going down
- The knee actions are the initiaters. Everything just adapts/adjusts to the knee actions.
- The torso drops into the hole that opens up gradually as the knees move.
- Don’t try to turn the torso ourselves, especially we have the tendency to use the shoulders to cause the torso turn.
- Lock the ankles and don’t allow them to bend, keep them perpendicular to the gound. This added restriction will require more effort in balancing. At the beginning, we may be falling backwards.
