Make sure to warm up well.
|Forehead to W||8x||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.|
|Straight to W||8x||First reach out towards the front to elevate the scapula then lift the hands up towards the ceiling. On the way back stop with your elbows in line with the shoulders. Lift your elbows and hands up towards the ceiling here as well. Keep your chest on the floor at all times.|
|Back Extensions||8x||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 sligthly for this exercise.|
|Arm Circles||10x each direction||Isolate the movement into the arms only. The rest of the body stays tight and immobile. Quick, small and dynamic circles to wake the shoulders up and get them ready.|
|Elbow Lifts||8x||Keep your forehead on the floor and interlock your fingers behind your head.|
|Wrist Warm Up||As needed||Stretch your wrists on the floor in all possible directions.|
|Wall Walks||1x2||Scapular elevated at all times. Look at hands at all times. Walk as close as possible to the wall. Do not allow your stomach to touch the wall. Feet only!|
|Slide Away||2x3||Start with your body in a perfectly straight line. Feet are the only thing touching the wall. Look at your hands and push out tall. Elbows locked. Move your shoulders to the front and slide the feet down the wall. When you are about to fall over take off from the wall and align yourself in a straight, freestanding handstand. Come abck to the wall as one straight unit. Do not close your shoulders on the way back. Do not pull your hips during the slide away. Do not arch your back. The only position change should be in the shoulders!|
|Tuck to Straight||1x||Focus on your tuck jump first. As soon as you have aligned your hips with your already aligned hands and shoulders extend your legs up in a perfectly straight line. Look at your hands and keep your elbows locked at all times. Elevate your scapula so your shoulders cover your ears!|
|Leg Circles - Straight Tuck Straddle||2x3||Keep elbows locked at all times. Do not round your lower back!|
|Tuck Single Leg Isolations||2x||Keep your hands, shoulders and hips in 1 line at all times. Pull your knees down towards the chest and keep them together. Extend 1 leg at the the time moving from the knee joint only.|
|Press Tap Press from 1 Block||3x1||Seperation is key here. On the way down towards the tap bring the legs around first. At this point your hands, shoulders and hips stay on one vertical line. Only when you can not pull your feet in any further sligthly move your shoulders towards the front, drop the hips towards the floor and gently tap the blocks. Keep your hip compression on the way back. Start by replacing your shoulders. Only when your hands, shoulders and hips are back in line the hips begin to open and the legs straddle around.|
|Chest to Wall Press||2x2||Keep your hands, shoulders and hips aligned. Through the widest straddle bring your feet down towards the floor by your wrists. Work towards closing your feet at the bottom. Come back up without arching the back or moving the shoulders.|
|Chest to Wall Leg Lifts||2x4||Bring your feet down at least past the hip line. Keep your hands, shoulders and hips aligned. Using your hip flexors and compression muscles only pull the feet away from the wall towards your armpits.|
|Tuck Planche Pulls||2x5||Turn your hands out, lean your shoulders to the front and keep them in front at all times. Pulling the knees towards the chest is the easy part. Pushing them back out is where it gets difficult!|
|Extreme Zombie||2x3||Use a chair, desk, hand balancing canes, kitchen island or anything else. Turn your hands out if necessary to protect your wrists from injuries. Lean your shoulders towards the front and use your compression muscles together with your back and shoulder muscles to pull your hips up. Bring your feet as close as possible towards the hands, squeeze for a moment and come back down.|
|Bent Knee Stalder Lift Offs||2x5||Keep your knees higher than your hips. Work on lifting your legs so high that your elbows become visible from the side. Push your shoulders down and show your long nad proud neck!|
|Sitting Leg Lifts||2x10 & 10sec hold||Start with hands between the knees but work on getting them between your hands. The further infront the better! Back is straight! Shoudlers down!|
|V-Up Combi||10x||Left, Right, Both, Both = 1 Rep. Knees locked, back straight!|
