    Works pretty much all of the lower body while using push muscles for stabilisation I do these after burpees at the end of a HIIT round bloody agonising but of course thats a good thing

  10. ITNW on April 3, 2021 at 7:39 pm

    Thank you, quick and straight to the point

  11. Kecil Rodrigues on May 30, 2021 at 1:55 pm

    Isn’t your core supposed to be tight as opposed to flat back?

  12. Joshua Scott on September 20, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    0:30 that “so if I set me self up directly” was so smooth I almost didn’t notice it 😂 👍

    *This has been amazing to help me sequencing my first classes **Tricks.Yoga** I LOVE THIS BOOK. I definitely recommend it to any new yoga teacher, who feels like a bit of advice from more experienced yogis. It’s always good to even check up or review a sequence one has already made. Great purchase!*

  14. DrSagaciousone on October 13, 2021 at 4:47 pm

    Thank you so much! I was doing it all wrong and had no idea. I had to subscribe!

  15. EU DK on January 13, 2022 at 11:43 pm

    did it in class today, realized I did it wrong, lmao! Thanks! I’ll remember this for next week.

  16. Daniela Lopez on March 22, 2022 at 11:23 am

    Thanks! I didn’t know how to do it perfectly, i still don’t know if its better but i need it for P.E

  17. Diesel Trashbat on April 2, 2022 at 3:03 pm

    Omg. I have hated/avoided mountain climbers my whole life and turns out I was doing them wrong

  18. C on June 6, 2022 at 11:59 am

    So that’s how you do it! My phone app made it look as if I had to jump between the positions and land with both feet. Thanks!

  19. Ms KSS on August 9, 2022 at 12:33 am

    I was doing this so wrong. Now I have to do 100 the correct way🥴

  20. Phantom HVAC on August 19, 2022 at 12:53 am
