Fund Facts

This exercise stabilizes the pelvis bilaterally. This Static Back position creates horizontal load between shoulder and pelvis, which contributes to thoracic extension by engaging the stabilizers and flexors of the hip. This position helps prevent compensation from occurring while performing other types of muscular work.
