Cobbler pose prevents early hip extension by creating stability in the hips thus increasing power and speed through impact which leads to more distance.
Come to a sitting position on the floor. Take the flesh out from under the sit bones and extend the spine long and tall, grounding down strongly through the sit bones. Place the soles of the feet together at a distance from the body that creates a good stretch in the groin and inner thighs. Cup the feet with the hands or hold on to the ankles/shins to create resistance to keep the back straight and long. Hold for 30 seconds to 3 minutes. You can also do this pose whilst sitting with the back against the wall.
