2. Proper Rotation
Description: This week's movement of the week will incorporate 3 movements you are familiar with - a pendulum lunge, bicep curl, and a stepping press. I think this will be our most successful week to date when incorporating multiple movements into one!
The #1 key to your success with learning this movement is patience! This is not a movement you can just hammer through and expect to be a pro. We are going to perform each movement in segments, so you do not need to feel rushed.
As always, start with your best posture and ensure you have set your footwork up prior to your first rep. Be patient with the pendulum, allowing the dumbbell to get to shoulder height prior to rowing the band & bicep curling the dumbbell. Finally, you will take a reverse step allowing the band to 'release' slightly as you press the dumbbell overhead, slightly turning the palm out.
When we perform movements with multiple steps, it's the ultimate test of staying braced and using our posture while we are in motion. And this is exactly how we want to move throughout our day.
Here's your checklist:
1. Your set-up will set you up for success - allow yourself the time to check in on your starting technique.
2. Patience with the dumbbell.
3. Stay braced and elevated as you step into the bicep curl & press
4. Utilize subtle rotations with each step, remembering to use your core strength and not your shoulder girdle.
5. UTILIZE MORE STRENGTH! We all have a little more strength than we think we do, use that little bit of 'EXTRA' to stabilize as you move!
HAVE FUN & KICK SOME BUTT!
