DemoExerciseReps/SetsHow to/Cues
Press Tap Press from 1 Block
2x1
Only when you can not pull any lower lean your shoulders towards the front sligthly and drop your hips to gently tap the blocks.
Press back up using the same pathways but in reverse. First re-establish your hand, shoulder, hip line with a slight anterior pelvic tilt and the feet still pulled down to your face, then bring your legs around and un-compress.
Keep your elbows locked, elevate your scapula and straighten your knees!
Extreme Chest to Wall Leg Lifts
2x3
When you return to the wall first open your shoulders fully and then untighten your hip flexors to bring the heels back to the wall. If your heels touch the wall whilst you open the shoulders you know you did not properly hold your compression.
Start with your hands, shoulders and hips vertically aligned with only feet touching the wall. The exact distance to the wall will depend on your current level of flexibility.
Engage your legs! Lock your knees, point your feet and squeeze the water out of them.
Dynamic L Sit to Standing with Bent Knees from Standing
1x3
Stay compressed and keep your legs close to your chest. If you open your hips or arch your back you will not make it up.
Fully lock your elbows. This is a straight arm skill! Treat it as such!

Pike Press Negatives
2x1
Only when your feet can not come any lower lean your shoulders towards the front sligthly and allow your lower back to round and the hips to drop.
Go as slow as possible and try to stay in control the entire time! If you feel like you are going to low and you are about to lose control: Stop and simply try to freeze in place!
Keep your elbows locked, elevate your scapula and straighten your knees!

Elevated Standing Pike Planche Leans
2x5
Place your feet against the wall to prevent them from sliding and mark the distance of your hands to the wall on the floor to measure your progress over time. The closer your hands are the harder this becomes. Use your shoulder muscles and truly get the feeling of pushing your body backwards in each rep. Do not pull back with your hips!
Lock your elbows fully. This is a straight arm drill! Rotate the pits of your elbows about 45 degrees towards the front. Externally rotate your hands to ease the pressure on your wrists.
Keep your lower back straight and place your hips in a slight posterior pelvic tilt. Engage your core and glutes and align your hips with your feet and shoulders.
