SP - Sliding Turtle

Resistance Flexibility Training
To resistance stretch, start in position one and resist by kicking your legs down into the ground, squeezing your thighs together, and pushing your arms into your legs as you extend your legs sliding them out and away from you.

Resistance Strength Training
To strengthen, start in position three or six and resist by kicking your legs down into the ground, squeezing your thighs together, and pushing your arms into your legs as you flex your legs sliding your heels toward your glutes while the sliding action against the floor slows down this movement.

Tip: It is easier to resist in this move after you have become accustomed to the bent leg Spleen/Pancreas stretches and the Turtle stretch. You can also place a towel around your back to grab and resist with your hands as in the Turtle stretch.
