Workout of the Day

Three In One


Today’s training includes three different exercises that all fit into the same basic movement pattern: pressing. The training calls for a vertical press (handstand push-up), a declined press (ring dip), and a horizontal press (push-up), all using your own body weight as the resistance. While all three patterns are classified as pressing, each will uniquely challenge your shoulders, back, chest, core, and arms to stabilize and press in a different direction. While this could simply be interpreted as a workout that’s meant to challenge your upper body and tax your shoulders, we think there’s more to be gained. Tune in to what your body is doing during each of these three similar but different movements. How do your shoulders stabilize in each? How is your core involved? How is each similar to and different than the other? What gets tired first?

Happy training!
