Knee Tuck & Hold
One of the biggest concerns new students have is their belief that they don’t have, and will never have the upper-body strength to be able to practice aerial arts. Especially for us women, upper-body strength seems to be one of our biggest struggles.
But here is the thing, our muscles are made to adapt to new levels of strength when you strain them enough. As long as you are willing to push yourself, you will get there, and you will start climbing up the silks or hoop with more fluidity and grace.
I wanted to share a quick tip on how to get stronger between climbs. Meet Ashleigh, one of our instructors, and recent bronze medal winner at the Aerialympics. Here she shares with us her favorite exercise for developing upper-body and core strength.
When you practice aerial arts, you naturally develop strength and flexibility. Take it from a girl who could not do a push up to save her life. Thanks to aerial arts a lot of our students can claim that they are in the best shape of their lives.
We hope you found this tip useful and we look forward to seeing you at our studio soon.
