Elbows “high and outside” is a powerful posterior exercise that develops strength in the biceps tendon, the biceps, all parts of the deltoids (shoulder caps), and the traps. This helps undo “tech neck”, but also helps develop better strength and coordination in the olympic lifts.

Commonly used in body building the high-pull, or upright row, can develop hypertrophy in the yoke area, keeping it strong and healthy. It’s also good for our athletes as that’s the place you rack a barbell for a back squat- the more meat for cushion, the better!

WATCH:

In any support position (pushup position on the ground, lockout on the parallel bars, lockout on the rings) the most efficient position for our purposes mean extended wrists, locked elbows, shoulders forward, upper back rounded, and abs on. If possible, lockout the legs and point the toes just in front of the body.

These points of performance help maintain tension in the shape and keeps us efficient at our movements like muscle-ups, dips, pushups, burpees, and more!
