Primary Muscle Groups: The Hip adductors, the Glutes, and muscles of the deep back and pelvis.
Technique Ques: The athlete begins the exercise by lying faceup on the ground with their arms at their sides, knees bent, and heels on the ground.
Draw your belly button in while maintaining a natural curve in your back.
Maintaining this flat back position, the athlete pulls their legs apart, knees towards the ground.
During this movement, the athlete attempts to prevent the pelvis | back from rolling, and should focus on achieving symmytrical external rotation in the hips.
After reaching the "butterfly" position the athlete pulls the knees together, returning to the starting position.

Options for Progression: The athlete can progress this exercise by increasing the number of reps and sets.
