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.
