This movement really opens up the chest and can be challenging to do correctly. In the video I am using a 26lb. bag and have placed my arms through the straps in order to stabilize the bag on my back and provide additional load to an already difficult movement. This movement is a great variation to throw into your resistive training routine, and I have added it into the end of some of my chest training sessions for for some burn out sets to really pump the blood into the muscles. You could also use this to add to a lower intensity/higher volume workout if glycogen depletion is a goal.
I would love to see some of our female athletes performing this movement, as it a demanding upper body exercise. Ladies, please share some videos of yourself performing this movement and I wil lpost it here on the website.
