improving active hip extension flexibility

Over the coming weeks I’ll be posting a number of important progressions for beginners videotaped at Bermuda Gymnastics Association.

Thanks Kim McHardy and Head Coach Adriana Forde.

As always, evaluate the exercise, not the kids demonstrating.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

Beginners are often better at passive flexibility (e.g. splits) than active flexibility which is needed for skills.

Our conditioning program should include active flexibility training exercises like this one.
