Floor Drill: Seated Leg Lifts for Beautiful Lines

Floor Drill: Seated Leg Lifts for Beautiful Lines

Want amazing lines in the air? It takes a lot of hard, consistent work, but it gets easier over time and it pays off! Floor drills are my favorite way to improve my aerial technique. It’s quite a bit easier to pay attention to the important little details when you’re not hanging onto an apparatus, whether aerial silks, aerial hoop, trapeze, rope, etc.

Repeating drills helps reinforce movement patterns that we WANT, and untrains habits (ahem, microbends) that we do NOT want! It is 100% worth the effort when you see a video or a photo of you and you’ve got killer knee extension and impeccable toe point. 

These drills target your hip flexors, quads, and calves while also demanding engagement from your core.
