We are taking all of our split stance foundational moves and making them into one movement. This week will be a great week to test out how strong you are connecting with your split stance and up through your core to your best posture. This is one of those movements that takes all of the ground work you've been focusing on and putting a new challenge onto it.
Over the last quarter of the year we have been focusing on our split stance connection from our feet all the way up to our head. Whether you have been taking the time and initiative to practice the pre-activation warm up before each session or creating that focus in your sessions you have seen these moves over and over again.
This move WILL test our footwork, posture and core stability, and being able to connect to our full body throughout the movement. When we lose the ground work of stability we will find the bungee pulling us around, losing our balance, and the move feeling very clunky and awkward.
This is a great challenge to elevate our split stance that we have been continuing to work on. Focus on one thing at a time and know that you are more than capable of putting all of these pieces together!
Here's your checklist:
1. Footwork: Make sure we are connecting through our feet for stability and muscle engagement
2. Posture: Connecting to our core to maintain elevation and control
3. Watch your row! Where is your elbow in space?
4. Use your whole body to rotate into your press
5. One step at a time (literally) you've got this!
