How should you demo floor zinger after pretzel at the center of the room? (Q&A Aug/Sept 17)

On profile or not at all


TRUE OR FALSE: You can teach floor zinger before a turned out seat exercise. (Q&A Feb/Mar 17)

False; it must come after the primary seat exercise


TRUE OR FALSE: You can teach zinger then kneeling seat without stretches in between. (Q&A Feb/Mar 17)

True! For example, it can also be a nice surprise to lead off with zinger and go right into kneeling seat (you don't have to stretch after zinger in this case because the arms get a rest in KS that follows - it is a great flow).


TRUE OR FALSE: You can use a minimat between the thighs in waterski seat (Q&A Dec 17/Jan 18)



TRUE OR FALSE: You can teach large range reps in legs together chair. (Q&A Aug/Sept 17)

TRUE OR FALSE: You can teach waterski seat with a mini mat between the thighs. (Q&A Feb/Mar 17)



What's the best flow for teaching floor zinger with kneeling seat? (Q&A Feb/Mar 17)

For the best flow, do kneeling seat side 1 (gluteus medius version), hamstring stretch (zinger version) floor zinger side 1, half lotus, repeat. Keep in mind, it is a lot on the knees so I’d keep kneeling seat short.


What's the correct direction for circles in OWL vs. for seat? (Q&A Aug/Sept 17)

OWLs is definitely in first, seat used to be out first but can now be either direction just make sure student's aren't overcrossing their bodies


TRUE OR FALSE: You can give two sets of high curl. (Q&A Aug/Sept 17)



TRUE OR FALSE: You must do a stretch after 30 pulse pushups (Q&A Jun/Jul 17)

False; you can move into large range pushups but can only do 30 small movements at once to keep the shoulder safe


TRUE OR FALSE: You can teach lateral squeezes in parallel positions (Q&A Feb/Mar 17)



TRUE OR FALSE: You can lift your hands off the bar during heel lifts coupe. (Q&A Dec 17/Jan 18)



After which exercise must clients face the bar for floor zinger? (Q&A Feb/Mar 17)

It's only mandatory to turn to the front mirror if floor zinger follows pretzel under the bar, as students will face that way for the stretches anyways.


TRUE OR FALSE: You may use a ball between the thigh in LC/FU large knee bends. (Q&A Jun/Jul 17)



TRUE OR FALSE: You can close your knees and open them as a choreography choice in backdancing with legs in a diamond. (Q&A Aug/Sept 17)

How should a pregnant woman modify waterski thigh/seat or knee dancing? (Q&A Jun/Jul 17)

This is OPTIONAL, but they should do narrow V or wide second for knee dancing and parallel or diamond for waterski thigh and standing seat for waterski seat


TRUE OR FALSE: Students with a severe anterior pelvic tilt may use a riser under their large mat for SLC. (Q&A Jun/Jul 17)

False; they may use it in floor core because their torso is down but not in SLC with curling


TRUE OR FALSE: You can use a ball behind the knee in floor zinger (Q&A Feb/Mar 17)

True. You may do any choreography in floor zinger that you can do in fold-over gluteus medius. That includes usage of the ball. Keep the leg out to the side to maintain the integrity of the exercise. It is super challenging, which is why we limit floor zinger to 1 min/side and fold-over gluteus medius to 2 - 2-1/2 min/side.
