Here’s a combination that brings together strength, function, and flexibility. Deadlifts are hands-down my favorite exercise. Requiring strength from your shoulders to your toes and focusing on properly using your glutes/hips, it is the king of form & function.
Inchworms is one of those things that is highly underrated. They look easy, but when done the right way, they are much more of a challenge than you would think. Here’s your list of things to remember when doing inchworms:
Keep your legs as straight as possible the entire time.
Walk the hands out slowly and with control.
Keep the naval pulled in the entire time.
Do not shift your hips as you walk your hands
Walk out to a perfect plank (with your shoulders over your hands and your hips inline with your shoulders. Or you can walk out to an extended plank where you keep walking the hands out past your shoulders while your hips are low.
Combine a single Inchworm and reverse Inchworm with your deadlift and you’re combination exercise won’t just be for your powerhouse (hips), it’ll be for the whole body.
