Stand with feet about six inches wider than beginning position, some people
also like to stand with their feet pointed a little bit inward but you can
work on that later if you want. Start by raising your right shoulder and pushing
out your left hip.
go back to the center and raise your left shoulder and push out your right
hip. Now do this back and forth in a non jerky manner. Don’t move your
arms or any other part of your body at all. When you push out your hips think
about really putting some weight into it without moving your feet and really
push it out.
try and do this same motion but instead push your hips out and shoulders up
as quickly as possible while still in control and completely the entire movement.
You want to try and spend as little time away from the center so that it’s
like a jerk, but don’t short change the movement.
the hard stuff begins, and trust me this might be difficult to visualize and
will probably take a while to understand and get but just keep trying and it’ll
click. Now go back to doing the hip out and shoulder up thing without the jerk
like in the beginning and this time as you come back to the center do two smaller
push ups with your shoulders alternating them. So start with your right shoulder
pushed up and left hip out now as you come back to the center just focus on
your shoulders and raise the left then right double speed of what you were
doing for the original push hips out and shoulders up. So for those who understand
a little music the counts for your shoulders rising would be 1 and a 2 and
a 1 and a 2. The 1 and 2 are the big shoulders up and hips out. For the smaller
shoulders you don’t have to worry about you hips, they will end up moving
naturally a little bit which is enough.
your comfortable with this and the timing, combine the smaller shakes with
the jerk. Good now you’re past the hard part. All you have to do now
is the arms. Have your thumbs facing forward in front of you so that the insides
of your wrist and facing each other. Keep your hands slightly outside of the
width of your body. Now bend your elbows so that it makes a triangle pointing
straight back behind you. Your hands should not be higher than your belly button,
and the angle of the bend at the elbow is right between straight and 90 degrees.
Now with your arms in this position start doing the shake with the jerk and
the little shakes in the middle.
When you’re really comfortable with
this, start exaggerating your elbows even more and start putting the jerk
into your elbows more. You’ll find once you really start getting it
that most of the focus is on your elbows.
