On the tummy with backbend.
This is a continuation of the On the floor lying on the tummy exercise TBB but is more advanced.
Previously the student was able to get the foot to the shoulder. Now that foot is grasped and pulled down towards the floor as ATB1.
The rear leg stays stretched to the rear and the toes of this foot should remain in contact with the floor. As the student becomes more flexible in the back the front foot will touch the floor as ATB2.
Time to move on
By this stage the student has a back with good flexibility and a new exercise is introduced - the layover.
Again, the exercise does not require balance as it is done on the chest. This allows relaxation by the student and the ability to achieve much greater flexibility.
