Understanding Engaging the Core

FUN1 J.2 – “Athletic Stance and Approach”
FUN1 J.3 – “Low Clasp and Athletic Stance”
FUN1 J.4 – “Arm Swing to Strong T”

Arms moving to the Strong T creates lift of body as our arms are the lifters of our body. At the same time this lift engages our posterior jumping chain of muscles used to lift our body off the ground. When you swing arms from down to up it engages all of the upper body muscles to contract as well as an eccentric / concentric reaction in lower body that coupled with an engaged core will lift the body into the air.
