Power Yoga Strength Training Drill: Froggie Hold


Power yoga practice breakdown
Strength Training for power yoga.
Froggie

 


THE PREPARATION
Place your hands on the floor with the elbows bent then scoot the knees around the arms in a squat position. Look forward.
THE MOVEMENT
Lean forward, push into the floor and lift the hips and feet upward as you coordinate the muscles in
the core, hips and legs to the muscles in your upper body.

Hold 1-60 seconds, 1-5 SETS
COACHING
1 minute proficiency with this posture will reveal a very well developed, strong, balanced and coordinated body. The common mistake is to rest the knees on the back of the arms like a similar posture in yoga practice. To train the lower body to integrate with the upper body they
must be challenged to work better so the legs need to go around the legs and squeeze inward to the outside of the arms. If the hands are close it's more challenging. If the weight doesn't shift forward enough you will not be able to learn to balance because the feet won’t leave the floor.
It's possible to fall forward so practice with a padded floor or carpet while learning.
