Backward Roll

Prescription: 
  • From a standing position, keep your arms up and sit back into a squat and roll onto your back
  • As soon as your butt and back touches the ground, bend your arms and reach behind your ears
  • Your hands should catch ground as you continue to roll back on your shoulders, protecting and taking any pressure off your neck and head
  • To complete the roll, allow the momentum to bring your legs and hips over your head
  • Only when the hips roll past vertical over your body do you press with your arms to finish the rotation to land on your feet again
