Bottoms Up!

YES! I just doubled the amount of KB exercises I can do by just turning it upside down. I forgot about these exercises until I went to the Perform Better Seminar and listened to Gray Cook. He likes the bottoms-up postion b/c it engages the posterior chain (hams, butt, back) and is a self-limiting exercise for the shoulder. Meaning, if you can’t hold it in a bottoms-up position, you probably can’t press it and can’t hurt your weak shoulder. Besides the exercises below you can do farmers walks, waiters walks, cleans, swing cleans and turkish get-ups as well as anything else you can think of. These are what I can “thinking” exercises, since it is so neurological taxing! If you think it’s easy try it and don’t BANG YOUR WRIST.
