Leg Behind The Head Variation

MAN ON THE MAT: WITH MICHAEL ELEY

Benefits

Like all leg behind the head postures, this one requires and improves flexibility of the hip joint, particularly external rotation. It stretches the leg muscles, especially the hamstrings and also strengthens the neck and back. It stimulates the digestive system, and has great effect on the circulatory and nervous systems of the body. Lifting yourself up off the floor obviously works to strengthen the arms and shoulders and raising the front leg up strengthens the abdominal muscles. All in all it’s a real ‘core’ strengthener – whatever it is people mean by ‘core’ these days!
