General and Boxing-specific Benefits
The Supine pose is a standard relaxation pose. It is an opportunity to completely relax, return to normal breathing patterns, assess the body, and release any unnecessary tension.
Cautions and Modified Versions
Participants with spinal discomfort in the Supine pose may need to bend or place a bolster beneath the knees. When bending the knees towards the chest, participants may need to move the knee to the side as wide as is comfortable.
Spine/Core: Diaphragm, abdominals
Upper limbs: Biceps brachii, triceps brachii, deltoid
Lower limbs: Hip flexors
