This pattern is to improve hip mobility and stability for the active straight leg raise pattern with the use of a bolster.
Set-Up: Begin in the supine posture by positioning yourself face up so that your back is on the floor. Place both feet / Achilles on the bolster. Flex your hips to 90 degrees. If 90 degrees is not achieved flex as much as you can while keeping your legs straight.
Action: Once in this position lower one leg to the bolster while maintaining the other legs position. Work to get the heel to touch the bolster with a neutral pelvis.
Return: Return the leg to the start position and repeat the sequence
