Building Shoulder Strength And Inversions

Building Shoulder Strength And Inversions

Changing your body position while executing a push-up can increase the load on the chest, shoulders or arms. To build strength in the shoulders, execute straddle and pike push-ups. These are set-up by walking the feet in closer to the hands and raising, rear-end towards the sky and shifting the weight from the feet into the hands. Building shoulder strength, and getting used to having the hips over the head, will prepare you for working into inversions. Donkey Kicks require a fair amount of shoulder strength, balance and core stability and control. You can start off small with both the regular Donkey Kicks and Side-to-Side Donkey Kicks , building up the strength, control and confidence to bring the hips all the way over the shoulders. Start off by completing 10 reps of the shoulder push-up variations; as you build strength, complete 3 sets of 10. When you are ready move onto Donkey Kicks, start small with 10 reps. Again, build your strength for 3 sets of 10 reps.
