Smart Toner™ Push Pull Combination
Using 2 Smart Toners™ the goal is to perform a Row with the pulling arm and a Press with the pushing arm. Cue the athlete into athletic ready position with a split stance (front foot contra-lateral to pulling arm). Pushing arm - Grasp one handle at shoulder level with elbow up. Pulling arm – Grasp the handle with palm facing in and the elbow in tight to the body. Core is set and upper body is strong. Successful execution involves linked rotation, pivoting of the feet while performing a rowing and pushing movement with the upper body. The pulling arm performs a row action that finishes with the elbow in tight to the body, the hand at hip height. The body rotates as a whole and pivots in the same direction as the pulling arm. The pushing arm performs a press action and finishes extended at shoulder height. Keep the core strong throughout the entire execution. During the recovery phase the whole body simultaneously returns to the start position through reversing the pivot, pulling action and pushing action.
