  9. 9. Counter Pose: Utthita Hasta Padangustasana (Extended HandTo BigToe) 1)The standing leg is not countered 2)The lifted leg shifts from hip extension and knee flexion to hip flexion and knee extension. Although the quadriceps are still concentrically shortening and the hamstrings eccentrically lengthening, the gluteus maximus of the lifted leg is now eccentrically legnthening and the psoas is concentrically shortening. 3)The spine shifts from spinal extension to spinal "flexion" but our theory is to always extend the spine with equal abdominal and erector spinae eccentric length regardless of flexed or extened directions.
