How-to: From hands and knees, bring your forearms to the ground, elbows right under your shoulders, hands directly forward of your elbows. Tuck toes and lift hips and belly straight up, forming a high V-shape.
Tips: To build arm and shoulder strength, particularly for forearm stands, walk your feet toward your elbows, bringing your hips closer to vertical over your shoulders. Rock your shoulders forward of your elbows while keeping your belly lifted, and then back behind your elbows while sinking your upper chest toward the ground. Repeat several times.
Benefits: Builds strength in arms and shoulders.
