Maximum engagement and minimal equipment! I like to change it up and recruit more muscles by performing upper body exercises in a half kneeling position.
Here are a few reasons why!
- By lowering your center of mass, you can move your hips and shoulders without too much compensation from the pelvis and lower back.
- With the narrower base of support, you’ll receive extra core stability and glute activation!
- If hip mobility is an issue, lifting from here can improve it.
