General And Specifics

Starting Position

  • tilt the upper body forward until 45 degrees, the back is upright
  • hold the upper arms about parallel to the floor and close to the torso
  • the forearms are hanging down
  • the palms point to each other

Correct Execution

  • brace upper arms and abs to release the lower back
  • stretch out the arms almost completely, only the forearms are moving
  • hold the position for a bit and come back to where you started
  • do not swing or gain momentum
  • repeat execution several times

tip for the workout
