Duration: 20 min
Props: Blocks, Strap
Wake up your upper body with this methodical class that's chock-full of isometric drills for your wrists, core, chest, and shoulders.
You'll start with a seated upper-body warm-up before moving on to isometric exercises for your wrists, where you'll work with your wrists' active and passive ranges of motion. After that, you'll awaken your shoulders' external rotators (infraspinatus and teres minor) before moving on to progressive core work and a targeted practice for your chest muscles that uses blocks for increased engagement.
In the latter part of class, you'll integrate everything you've done with two practices. The first is a wall-supported drill from standing, where you'll fire your chest muscles, rotator cuff, and core. The second is a fully activated practice of chaturanga where you'll use blocks for optimal alignment and activation. And finally, for one last challenge, you'll do as many push-ups as you can!
