  • Bent Arm Hang Engagement for Aerial A...

    Don't: Let your shoulders come up to the ears.
    Instead: Engage your lower Trapezius muscle to keep the shoulder blades in place.

    Don't: collapse into protraction (bringing your shoulder to the front)
    Instead: "Smile with your collarbones" keeping the shoulders wide & strong

  • Hollowing vs. Drawing in

    Different core engagement demonstrated.

    Hollowing: Pelvis tucked, core engaged & drawing in -- there is a change in the spine.
    Drawing in: Spine stays neutral, core engagement only moves belly towards the spine.
