Working the anterior sling – laying, sitting, standing

There may be more to this anterior sling work than I expected.

New Observations

  • New chair exercise for anterior sling. Interesting is that I have to mindful give my side muscles an extra squeeze. After doing it off and on for an hour or so while working at my computer, when I got up and did the standing version of it, I was able to turn much farther to the left without my adductor locking up on me. This is something I’ve been struggling with for a while, so it’s interesting I had such drastic results in such a short time. Interesting. Also interesting is when I sat back down and lifted the left leg, it was significantly easier. This is something I really, really have struggled with this.
  • An interesting variation to the chair exercise for the anterior sling: while twisted to the left, I’ll activate my left glutes by pressing out into my hand(s).

Movements to make a video of:

  • Seated anterior sling movements from side to side

Movements to do for the rest of my life:

  • Seated anterior sling movements from side to side
  • Laying anterior + posterior sling movements – glute bridge when you can
  • Rotational lunges – for the lateral sling
  • Standing on one leg – for the lateral sling
