Modified Leg-Tuck and Twist
From: FM 7-22 October 2012
Starting Position: The starting position for this exercise is the seated position with the arms sideward or at 45 degrees to the body (according to profile limitations). Place the palms down and bend the knees 90 degrees. Keep the feet flat on the floor. Assume the starting position as in the leg-tuck and twist, but with the feet flat on the ground.
Count: On counts 1 and 3, lift the feet off the ground and rotate to the left or right side, pulling the knees toward the chest. Lower the feet to the ground, returning to the starting position on counts 2 and 4 (Figure 6-90). Over time, gradually increase the range of motion and work toward the standard execution of the leg-tuck and twist.
