In addition to strengthening legs and abdomen, improving balance and core strength, Warrior 3 strengthens the ankle, helps prevent ankle injuries, and can help recovery after an ankle injury

1. From Warrior I, bring the hands onto your hips.
2. Bring your weight forward into your front foot as you gently kick up your back leg.
3. At the same time, bring the torso forward until it is parallel to the floor.
4. Keep the neck relaxed, as if it's the natural extension of the spine.
5. Keep both hips pointing toward the floor as you bring the back leg in line with your body.
6. Flex the raised foot and keep the muscles of the raised leg actively engaged.
7. Bring the arms back along your sides
