Do you have a habit of bending your knees during the Toes To Bar?
An early knee bend in the toes to the bar can be detrimental to our efficiency in our shapes, specifically our arch position, the area that is MOST responsible for developing the momentum in the Toes To Bar
Add these movements to YOUR Routine and watch the toes to bar IMPROVE MASSIVELY
1) The Arch Pushout
Addresses the mobility requirement for the toes to the bar, by forcing the position
This will build stability in the arch, making it easier to return to this position
2) Beat Kips
Practicing maintaining good HOLLOW and ARCH shapes, Beat kips can be key to practicing the arch position in a more realistic scenario
By starting small, and generating more momentum, you can maintain the shapes and stop the early bend of the knee
3) Dynamic Kipping Toes To Bar
Adding a band on J Hooks, The Dynamic Kipping Toes To Bar is an amazing variation to force the legs to maintain tight positions, especially in the ARCH. This will also double as a great Toes To Bar Priming exercise, as it grants the user more momentum on the way up.
Add these 3 movements into your routine, and remove those nasty knee bends
