Exercise of the Day: Dive Bomber

This week I'm going to be focusing a lot on the upper body. Today's Exercise of the Day is the Dive Bomber.

The Dive Bomber works your entire core and your chest, arms, and shoulders.

1-Start in a Downward Dog position. Push through your heels into the floor and create length in your back and legs. This is Step A in the picture.
2-Bring your upper body forward so that your shoulders are over your wrist.
3-Lower yourself into a tricep pushup/Chatarunga pushup, keeping your entire body activated. This is Step B in the picture.
4-When you reach the lowest point you can keep your chest hovered over the ground, push your chest forward, and bring your torso upright. You should be in Upward Dog Pose.
5-Bend your elbows near to your side and shift your upper body back into the hover position, as seen in Step B.
6-Push your glutes back and end in the Downward Dog position.

Do 12-15 repetitions of the Dive Bomber.
