I was excited to do ring work to work on my shoulder strength, particularly in smaller stabilizing muscles. Initially I couldn’t stabilize on the rings, so had to have some assistance from coaches. However, Coach Chris gave me an awesome cue to actually think about hollowing AS I jump up, not just once I’m there — this would help me keep the rings in a better position, right under my shoulders and not behind me. After that, I managed to stabilize myself for a couple seconds! Sweet.
Close-grip push-ups are kind of tough. I also need to get back on the DU practice so I can get rid of high knees!
