Default An Advanced Multi-plane Pushup Video & Essay

Bowers are an advanced multi-plane pushup variation that I often use with my stronger athletes. They build tremendous strength throughout the entire shoulder girdle, chest and arms, as well as the lower back and abs.

Follow the link for a demonstration video, performance guidelines and detailed progressions for developing this exceptional movement: http://gymnasticbodies.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=418

Yours in Fitness,

More great stuff, Coach. Thanks.

I can't wait until your book comes out to put all this stuff together!

Me and my son tried the psuedo planche pushups last night. I got one leg off the floor for a couple of seconds.

Those are hard.
