Many of the popular core exercises concentrate on “anti” workout stability training: anti-lateral flexion, anti-rotation, and anti-extension.
The “anti-press” works all those sections altogether.
So, how to do the anti-press? It is actually
very simple. You just need to follow some specific routines.
Take ahold of the handle of a suspension strap
such as the TRX and face sideways. Incline to create about a 60% angle with the
Now strengthen your core to prevent from
twisting and press straight out till your arms are completely stretched. This
section of the movement is comparable to a Pallof press you might do with
cables or bands working anti-rotation.
From where you are, bring your rest for a short second. Now, you’re concentrating on anti-extension
and anti-lateral flexion. Repeat everything for the wanted reps.
Not only that this exercise is great for core
balance, but it also aids with shoulder muscle and mobility.
Progress and Regress
It’s simple to progress or regress the workout
just by modifying your foot posture and the expansion of the strap. The farther
out your feet are from the anchor location and the smaller the strap is and the
easier it will be. Transfer your feet more under the anchor point and extend
the range of the strap as you get more powerful.
This is a very difficult workout, so you may
need to begin with only the overhead part.
