The Best Anti-Rotation You Aren’t Doing?

The Push:Pull is one of my favorite anti-rotation exercises, one that you don’t see a ton of people using in their training or with their clients.

Teaching and training the core muscles to stabilize is a key to our training, and the Tall Kneel Push:Pull does just that.

A lot of people would look at this as just a press and a row, which it is, but the core is actually stabilizing against rotational forces as you are pressing and rowing — the press and the row create the rotational force that we are resisting against.

Using a Keiser or any other pulley system (we are using the Ancore system), simultaneously press with one arm and pull with the other while staying in a tall posture…and keep those shoulders square so that there is no movement other than the arms.
