Working at the periphery of the envelope of function
He needs to move from a four point stance to a stand up position. The transfer from kneel to standup right now is outside his envelope- the knee perturbates in the process. So I have his R knee elevated to reduce the depth of the stand up. I keep folding the mat and have him single leg stand up until the perturbation resolves.
By the way, the single leg stand up is a great remedial tool to improve the single leg squat. By moving the knee of the trail leg ahead of the forward leg heel, it reduces the ability of the trail leg to assist in the movement.
