This exercise is in my personal top ten. It develops strength, flexibility, and endurance in the shoulders, core and legs. Hard to imagine another single exercise that would benefit a hunter more than this one.
- Begin in the "pike position" (basically the up portion of a push-up, with the butt elevated).
- Drive the nose down to the ground, then swoop up until the head is up, the hips are just off the ground, the arms are locked and the back is arched.
- Now begin to walk the toes toward the hands, taking small steps and bending at the waist.
- Once you have reached a "jacknife", stop and begin walking the hands out until you return the original starting position.
This exercise is to be performed for distance, rather than reps or time. I suggest 30 feet as a good starting distance. Perform 4-6 sets of 30', with short rests in between.
It will take two posts for me to squeeze the photos in.
