If you talk to most people who press to handstand they will tell you that before they learned to straddle or pike press, they learned to puppy press. It seems to be an inevitable stop on the way to a full press. Maybe it is because getting one hip up and over your hands is easier than two! 🤔🤓This is one of my favorite moves and I am so happy to be pressing again with a bit more ease! 🐶🤸♀️🙌
🙌Make sure you warm up with some hamstrings and hip stretches. The warmer you are the easier these will be! Once you are warm, grab a chair and place it parallel to the wall. Stand between the chair and the wall. Place one foot on the chair and then lean forward into your hands and place your other foot on the wall. You won’t be able to “stand” on the wall like spider man, but what you want is a bit of leverage to help you to shift your hips/center of mass further forward so that you can press and not kick. Once you can do that, you are golden so to speak! 💰Expect to have a lot and/or nearly all the weight in your hands and shoulders and almost none in the foot on the wall, it is merely a guide and a lever.
🙌Place your hands shoulders distance apart on the floor. Shift your shoulders over your wrists and protract your shoulder blades, moving them away from the center of your spine. Keep this protraction as it is key to any press. .
🙌Take a deep inhale and as you exhale press down into your hands and lean further forward until you feel the leg on the chair get light. Push into the foot on the wall and use it to move your hips further forward over your hands. You want your shoulders over your knuckles at the very least. The tighter you are, the More forward lean you will need to float. This is why flexibility is a big component of pressing to handstand. Also, grab a friend and have them spot your hips on the way up giving you a tiny help if you need it by pulling your hips further over your hands. This will help you get the feeling of doing the movement so that you can eventually do it alone! . #puppypresstutorial#puppypresshandstand#handstand#presshandstand#yogavideo#yogavideos#yogatutorial

This weekends Bootcamp challenge was 5 laps around the tesco car park (we made the most of it being closed)! You go at your own pace i.e walking, jogging and running. We were a little out of our comfort zone and for others it felt quite natural although you all did a wonderful job of giving it your best effort. It was also a great place to cool off❄️

Let's get lost inside the clouds
And you, you don't gotta work harder
I can calm you down"
Your press up is a killer move but in order to create a stable platform for your shoulders and thoracic spine,you have to create Torque through your hands.
If your hands are in a position where you can’t create torque it’s hard to stabilise and generate force. We aren’t just talking about the understated push-up here it’s about the entire bin load of pushing and pulling exercises. If you consistently adopt an open hand position in a push up you will pretty much adopt that in push anything or hit a burpee for example. Check out the pics and you will find you can’t create anywhere near as much torque with your hands turned out and this gets less as you turn your hands further out until with your hands facing the other way you lose the ability to create any torque.🔥
Note- screwing your hands into the floor creates external rotation in your shoulders but physically externally rotating your hands robs you of your ability to generate torque.😉 #muaythaitraining#biomechanics#squats#foamroller#legday#hiitworkout#pressup#crossfit
Demo of one of my fave Bodyweight EXERCISES 💪 the DUMBELL PRESS UP. This exercise is a great upper body strength exercise incorporating Pec, Delts, Traps, Bi's and Tris to lift your Bodyweight up from the deep downward position.
MIX IT UP, TRY IT!! 👊
Haven’t posted in the last day or two so today I did my upper body strength day and warmed up with some headstands and then did:
5 sets of 5 Chin Ups followed by 21’s
5 sets of 5 Ring Dips followed by tricep extensions
4 sets of 8 Arc Rows and Pseudo Press Ups(Super Set)
3 sets of 8 Dragon Flag followed by a 45 second plank with a 10kg vest
I THINK THAT THIS CAN BE CLASSED AS A PROPER PRESS UP? Been struggling like crazy to keep my back straight but Jack has been training me and I made him film this because I think maybe this one is legit????? BUZZED. 🌞🐥 .
Happy Easter! .
