Working on upper body push strength today (which, by the way, is my nemesis).
These tuck-throughs are killer... Getting from plank to reverse plank isn’t too bad, but getting the legs back through again is SUPER tough (‘specially when your socks get sweaty and start sticking to the floor 🤣).
You have to really push and lift to get as much distance between the floor and the shoulders as you can, while still maintaining your abdominal compression with knees to the chest.
I absolutely love working on my pike headstands. I have graduated away from the Swiss ball now. Just working on hamstring flexibility so I can get up without that little hop. :) Xxx #Headstand #Inversions #Pike #Playtime #UpperBodyStrength #CoreControl #PersonalTraining #PersonalTrainerBrighton
This is a great little routine for anyone wanting to build upper body strength and core stability. I am using 6kg kettlebells here, but make sure you choose an appropriate weight. Always go for technique over excessive load! 1. Renegade row: Make sure you hold your plank position, and use your core strength to keep your hips low and level. No rocking back and forth! 2. Chest press with BOSU bridge: Keep the glutes engaged and hold the hips high and steady - the feet might pad
