Exercise Performance
Now that you’ve mastered the vertical press, it’s time to experiment with lowering yourself down to horizontal positions. Approach your vertical base, and get into the basic press hold. From here, kick up into a Vertical Press. Now bend the leg closest to the base until it’s at about 90 degrees (a right angle). Do this by bending the leg while bringing that knee forward a little. Once your position is fixed, smoothly lower your body to horizontal. Your trunk and lowest leg should form a perfectly straight horizontal line, with no sagging. Hold the position (even if just for a split second) breathing normally.
