A tough modification to hit your boot-eh! It’s even tough without the sandbag (you can use anything as extra resistance really: no sandbag needed! Just make sure it can sit on your lap without falling).
If you’re feeling really bad ass, add a mini-tricep dip at the top, bending your elbows just slightly.
- Press through the heels, and tuck your hips under your pelvis to engage your glutes.
- Hands directly under your shoulders: adjust for comfort.
- No need to lift high: even a mini-lift is enough.
- If you experience discomfort, strain or pain? Stop. This move is not for everyone. Try an easier modification if needed (including from the floor).
