Supple strength Sun Salutation sequence

Supple strength Sun Salutation sequence

Swim England Para-Swimming trainer Sam Cooper demonstrates a supple strength Sun Salutation sequence that can be done at home. Supple strength movements are an excellent way for swimmers to maintain and develop flexibility, as well as core strength. Once you have completed your supple strength warm-up, continue on to your Sun Salutation supple strength sequence. In this video, Sam shows how to perform a sequence involving a cobra pose, walk out to press-up hold, lower to floor in press-up hold, transition to downward dog, and heel lifts in downward dog. 1) Cobra: Starting from a standing position, lower yourself on to hands and knees, then again into a lying position. Lift up to a cobra pose. Slowly return your body to standing, then repeat. 2) Walk out to press up hold: Starting from a standing position, roll your body down then walk your hands out in to a press-up hold position. Keep a straight line through your shoulders, hips and heels. 3) Lower to floor in press up hold: Bring your belly button towards your spine, and squeeze your glutes in backside. Slowly bend your elbows to lower your body to the floor in a straight line. 4) Downward dog: From this lying position, put your hands and feet on the floor, then walk your feet closer to your hands. Send your hips towards the ceiling, tucking your head between arms. Straighten your legs, with your heels towards the floor. 5) Heel lifts in downward dog: From downward dog position, step your feet closer to your hands and lift alternate heels, sending the other one into the floor. This is an excellent movement if you have tight calf muscles. 6) Return to standing: From downward dog position, drop your knees to to the floor, walk your hands back in, then gently roll up to standing again.
Supple strength warm-up exercises

Supple strength warm-up exercises

Swim England Para-Swimming trainer Sam Cooper demonstrates a range of supple strength movements which can be performed as a warm-up to a full sequence. Supple strength movements are an excellent way for swimmers to maintain and develop flexibility, as well as core strength. You don’t need any special equipment – just a clear space. If you don’t have a yoga mat, it is fine to do these on carpet. In this video, Sam shows how to correctly perform a knee bend with deep breaths, pelvic tilt, heel lifts, roll downs, cat stretch, cobra pose, and child pose. 1) Knee Bend with deep breaths: Keep your feet hip-width apart and breathe in as you bend the knees. 2) Pevlic tilt: With feet hip-width apart, keep your knees soft and look ahead as you tilt the pelvis forward and back. 3) Heel lifts: Pull your belly button in towards your spine to engage abdominal muscles. Lift alternate heels and raise the opposite arm to each heel as a progression. 4) Roll downs: With feet hip-width apart, pull in your belly button to engage your abs, then roll down slowly joint-by-joint. Breathe out and level the pelvis, then roll up slowly joint-by-joint. 5) Cat stretch: Start on all fours with a straight back. Breathe in as you round your back to the ceiling and tuck your head in. Breathe out as you slowly uncurl and return to your starting position. 6) Cobra: Starting from a lying position, place hands under shoulders and slowly lift your torso, keeping your pelvis on the floor. Keep your neck long and your shoulders far away from your ears. 7) Child pose: Take your backside back on to your heels and slide your fingers forward on the floor for a gentle back stretch.
