Volleyball Training Tip Day 23: Yoga Push Up

The Yoga Push Up (Down Dog with Push Up) is an exercise we have started to use a little more recently for a handful of reasons; 👇

☑️Promotes scapular upward rotation, which we know is big for Shoulder Health

☑️Demands eccentric control of downward rotation

☑️Anti-Extension core work

☑️Extremely Shoulder friendly pressing movement

Depending on the time of the year, you could use this as a part of a complete warm up or as a pressing movement in the actual lift.

Programming Advice: if it’s used in the warm up, a set of 4-6 reps would be ideal, and if it’s part of the lift, we’ll typically perform 2-3 sets of 4-6 reps. 💪
