Progressions & Variations

Tips

Avoid allowing the body to swing back and forth. Instead, keep your torso as still and stable as possible.

Avoid using momentum. Do not jerk your legs up. Instead, contract your core musculature to generate the movement.

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

Do not shrug your shoulders. Force them down and back to recruit your lats and make it less stressful on the shoulder joint.
