Progressions & Variations

Tips

Avoid allowing the body to swing back and forth. Keep your torso as still/stable as possible.

Avoid jerking your legs up. Instead contract your core to generate movement.

Avoid hyperextending the lower back. Your spine should remain flat/neutral throughout the movement.

Avoid shrugging your shoulders. Force your shoulders down/back to recruit your lats and make it less stressful on the shoulder joint.
