  1. Mobility and Flexibility:
    This exercise challenges the mobility and flexibility of the hips, spine, and shoulders as you transition through the different positions.

    Executing this complex movement pattern seamlessly requires excellent coordination and control over your entire body.

    Improving the mobility, strength, and control developed through this exercise can help reduce the risk of back, hip, and other musculoskeletal injuries.
