I hope you’ve got a physio ball lying around, cos you’re gonna need it! This can also be done a rowing machine if not. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
There are three (/four) versions of this exercise. They’re great exercises for improving your strength for press to handstand, as well as just an all around shoulder and body tension workout. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
For all of these exercises you’re going to want to focus on straight arms, keeping your midsection tight, and making sure you maintain posterior tilt. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Version 1 (sort of shown, but not really) is to just hold a push-up position with your feet on the ball. Sounds easy, but the wibbly-wobbly ball make it tricky. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Version 2 is push up position with feet on the ball and bringing your knees to your chest. Make sure to keep your hips low. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Version 3 is to pull up into as high a pike position as you can muster, and then lower back down to push up position. It’s crucial to keep your shoulder over (ideally a little in front of your hand) to make sure we’re working the right position. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Version 4 is like version 3’s ugly older brother. You do the same thing, and then push backwards into what resembles a handstand line. This one gets tricky fast, so make sure you only go as far as you’re form allows. We’re looking to train the good position, so going further but with a worse position is not helpful.
