Light on the toes, knees as high as possible. Posterior pelvic tilt. Go fast and get your your heart rate up!

Focus on stability and balance. Reach as far under as possible and all the way up in each rep. Keep your core engaged.

Hips & Shoulders squared and parallel to the floor. Lower back is straight. Careful not to slip into an anterior pelvic tilt. Start with your front knee over your front heel. From here gently pushing it outwards without changing the position of your hips.

Legs hip width apart. Feet pointing towards the front with locked knees. Lower back is straight or even arched. Work on your anterior pelvic tilt to lengthen the hamstrings!

Rotate your thumbs up during the W part. Make sure that your elbows are 90 degrees bent and in line with the shoulders. Do not lift the entire upper body. Only lift the elbows and hands.

Start by internally rotating your arms so the back rounds and the pinky fingers touch the floor. Then externally rotate the arm, squeeze your shoulder blades together in the back, look up towards the ceiling and engage the whole back lifting the upper body of the floor. Open your legs slightly for this exercise.

Push your entire body including chest, core and hips against the wall. Look at your hands. First reach up towards the ceiling to elevate the scapula and then back. If you can not reach back due to a lack of mobility push your armpits towards the wall instead.

With your knees and elbows locked and your head slightly tilted back to look at your hands push your feet and hands as far away from your center as possible. Elevate your scapula to cover your ears and lift your hands and feet sligthly off the floor. Make sure your lower back is pushing against the floor

Push out tall, keep your lower back on the floor at all times! Look at your hands. Keep your knees together and the feet on the same distance to the floor throughout the whole movement!

Make fists with your hands for warm up. Open your hands fully stretching the wide between each rep.

Place the palms of your hands against each other in front of your chest. Spread your fingers wide and push them down in front of your chest increasing pressure in each rep.

Rotate your wide spread hands infront of your chest towards the front and back.
