Of course, frogs aren’t bipedal; they don’t stand on extended legs really at all. So this lesson doesn’t have the kind of neurological and functional significance for a frog that it has for us.
All these years, I tell you to go slower, slower, slower–and now fast? Fast, quick, light movements? Astonishing. And just wait to see how your breathing and use of your spine changes.
This is AY 447, for those keeping track. And a week is a long time in Canada, lately anyway. The bobblehead joke probably no longer makes much sense. It’s been overtaken by other events. Miley Cyrus is eternal however (really?) and the ATM I refer to as “the Miley Cyrus” is AY 451.
- Basic back: the recording didn’t come out, but you can try a version of this lesson here: Coordinating flexors and extensors
- On the stomach, training the back (the first part of AY 473)
- Opposition on the Side (AY 447)
- Frog’s legs variations
- Lean on the knee and get up (AY 409)
- On the stomach, face to knee (AY 533)
- Bonus! Supporting the head, continuation (AY 534)
If this face-down lesson doesn’t add an inch or so to your height (subjectively, if not objectively), I’d be surprised.
For those keeping track at home, this is a slow build-up, more or less half of AY473, with some loose interpretation.
