Dryland Activities:

Partner Pull Position 11

One person bends at the waist and the knees extending arms forward.
Partner grabs wrists and pulls forward slightly, while lifting to horizontal.

Goal is to get back flat and arms flat like doing a standing position 11.

Dryland – Crab Scuttle

One person holds Crab Walk position, and the partner has to scuttle like a tiny twinkle toes fish through the crab’s feet.

Tiny twinkle toes fish = on your belly, using only your toes and hands to move, but staying as low as possible.

Perfectly in the middle.
