Hollow Body Rockers

Lying on your back (supine) tuck your tailbone, squeezing your legs and glutes tightly. Lift your shoulder blades off the ground by pressing your ribs down and engaging your upper abs. Holding this dish shape, begin to rock front and back. Think of initiating the rock upwards with the legs by pulling the pelvis off the ground, then the upper body rock by pushing the chest forward.

Flexed Arm Hang

Hanging in either a pullup grip (pronated) or chinup grip (supinated), pull until your arms are bent at less than 90 degrees. This movement is isometric, so we will be holding the static position for a length of time. It is important the elbows stay close to the body and not flared out to the sides.

Variations: Pulling until your chin is over the bar, and your elbow angle is compeletely closed, and hold. Or pulling until your elbow angle is 90 degrees and holding in this position.
