Constant Velocity

Playing around with constant velocity is a great way to put a fun twist to your exercises and movements. Going at a constant speed forces you to use more technique, balance, and flexibility. Not to mention it fires up the smaller muscle fibers that are generally dormant. In this video, I used this training technique on a press to handstand – actually the one I did was a piked press to handstand, which is different from a standard one since I don’t straddle.  At any rate, I could immediately feel more of my core kicking in (particularly my transverse abdominis), and also realized I was relying more on my pike flexibility to find my balance. For starters, try using this method on movements and exercises that you feel that you have completely mastery of!
