Movement of the Week // Strict Knees to Elbow Progressions

Share This Post

knee to elbow - bodyweight core work

This week on the blog I am sharing some coaching and training tips on knees to elbow progressions!

This movement is super effective for developing strength, stability, mobility throughout the shoulder girdle, lats, trunk, scaps, and beyond!

FOCUS:

  • Set hands at about shoulder width or or slightly wider on the bar
  • Wrap your thumbs
  • Maintain straight arms throughout
  • Use your lats to lift your hips high enough to reach your knees to make contact with your elbows
  • Press down onto the bar through your palms to activate your lats while holding a strong hollow body position to create more leverage
  • Keep your shoulder girdle and lats active by pulling shoulders down and away from your ears
  • Compress your ribs towards your hips
  • Squeeze your glutes
  • Tuck your tailbone
  • Straighten and engage your legs
  • Point your feet
