Rockpress Exercise

This is a great exercise if you are wanting to add in some body weight training that loads your shoulders and triceps.  This is an exercise commonly seen in Zuu Training and other bodyweight methods.

Start in the A – Frame position with hands and shoulder width position and slowly lower your head down towards the ground.  If you are wanting to progress this exercise and make it harder, form a diamond shape with your hands and perform the same movement.  Start slowly by working through a small range of motion and as you develop strength, progress the depth of movement.

If you would like to find out more about how you can add exercises like this into your everyday workout, then be sure to contact Osteopath Heath Williams at Principle Four Osteopathy.

If you are currently not training or suffer from any lower back or shoulder or neck complaints, please avoid trying this exercise.
