(REVERSE) MEATHOOK Intensive
Master Your (Reverse) Meathook
This workshop will cover PT exercises and prehab, drills, progressions, and conditioning to unlock both meathooks and reverse meathooks on 2 and then 1-arm. Aerialists of any apparatus will benefit from finding their ideal alignment, while understanding the nuances of how that alignment may change during movement. Students will start with a series of exercises on the floor that encourage active thoracic mobility, shoulder engagement, and core stability, followed by an exploration of the different ways to target weaknesses and train (reverse) meathooks with and without a spot.
Prerequisites: ability to hold inverted pencil/neutral/arrow and straddle. Ability to do pull-up (s) and inversions from the air encouraged.

Want to improve your waist roll ups/downs OR your back balance OR your static switches on straps?
