LITHE GOAL OF THE WEEK! 18 Feb 2013
Lithe's Higher Power Band System is a true multitasking prop. It really defines the armpit, dynamically works the shoulder girdle AND works the rhomboids and trapezius isometrically while stretching pectoralis minor and major. They shape the body to absolute perfection-All the way down to your hips.
This week lets work on our hand form! Resist using the Squeeze, Claw and Broken Wrist grips (shown above). Try your hardest to place the band between your thumb and forefinger and work with your palms facing down so that you can really attack the correct muscles of the arm. In the beginning you may feel a bit of soreness in the muscles of the thenar eminence and transverse ligaments where the thumb and wrist meet. That soreness will go away within 4-6 classes.
