We use this exercise to teach proper hip mechanics. When this exercise is done properly, the movement should come primarily from the hips with a slight bend at the knees and ankles. You should maintain a neutral spine throughout the exercise (no hunching forward). This can be added to a warm-up for anyone, or as a main exercise for people with poor balance and hip stability.
