How to Incorporate Bracing into Your Workouts

Now that you understand the basics of bracing, here’s how to incorporate it into your workouts for maximum benefit:

Back Squats and Deadlifts

Keep your ribs down and your eyes looking at the floor about 20 feet in front of you. This alignment helps maintain proper spinal stability.

Front Squats, Overhead Squats, and Cleans

Keep your ribs down but your eyes looking straight ahead. Find a spot on the wall to focus on, which helps keep your upper body stable and your core engaged.

Overhead Presses, Push Press, Push Jerks

Maintaining core stability while pressing overhead can be challenging. Focus on keeping your core engaged throughout the entire movement to protect your back.

Pull-Ups and Kipping

For pull-ups and kipping, keep your eyes forward, toes pointed, legs together, and butt squeezed to maintain your brace while on the rig.

Incorporating these bracing techniques will enhance your performance and reduce the risk of injury.

Send us any questions you may have and we'd love to help out in any way we can.
