|Single Leg Tuck Slide
|1x3 each leg alternating
|Just like a regular tuck slide but pull down 1 leg at the time. Make sure your shoulders are covering your ears and that your hands, hips and shoulders stay squared at all times.

|1x3 each leg alternating
|Externally rotate the leg as soon as it moves. Do not move your shoulders or hips. Keep both perfectly centered and parallel towards the floor and each other.

|Start with your body in a perfectly straight line. Feet are the only thing touching the wall. Look at your hands and push out tall. Elbows locked. Move your shoulders to the front and slide the feet down the wall. When you are about to fall over stop and push your feet back up on the wall back to your starting position. Do not pull your hips during this movement. Do not arch your back. The only position change should be in the shoulders!
