Series: My Favorite Ground to Stand exercises #2

Video #2: Straight leg over switch to single leg balance

Here’s the list of benefits for the Over-switch to stand get-up exercise:

  1. Improved Hip Mobility and Stability:
    The Over-switch action challenges hips range of motion and stability, helping to improve overall lower limb health and function
  2. Shoulder and Core Strength and Stability:
    Performing the get-up requires significant shoulder to core activation and control, helping to build and maintain strength.
  3. Total Body Coordination:
    The get-up exercise involves coordinating the movements of the legs, hips, core, and arms, promoting overall body control and coordination.
  4. Balance and Proprioception:
    Maintaining the proper position and executing the movements of the get-up challenge your balance and proprioception (awareness of your body’s position and movement in space).
  5. Functional Movement Pattern:
    The get-up is a compound, multi-joint movement that mimics real-world actions, such as getting up from the floor or ground, making it a functional exercise.
  6. Injury Prevention:
    Strengthening the muscles and improving the mobility involved in the get-up can help reduce the risk injuries.
  7. Bodyweight Mastery:
    The get-up exercise requires you to control your body weight and movement, which can contribute to a sense of mastery and confidence in your physical abilities.
