Work on your arm balance game by incorporating this routine from DeAndre Sinette into your practice every other day.
1. Chaturanga push-ups (arms should be at about a 90 degree angle at low position). 6 sets of 5-10 slow reps.
2. Bakasana with feet on the floor (knees pressed into armpits or as close as you can get them). Keeping arms straight, really push into the floor (make sure fingers are engaged). Hold for 30 seconds to 1 minute. 2-3 sets.
3. High plank. Hold for 45 seconds to 1 minute. 3 sets.
4. Side plank. Hold for 30-45 seconds. 3 sets.
Test your bakasana every few weeks to gauge progress. Increase reps and hold times for more intensity.
