Handstand swing through is a multi-dimensional circumferential shoulder move that stimulates the maximum number of muscle fibers with a single move

One Insane Shoulder-Defining Move

Are you still doing the same exercises as everyone else?

If you do the same exercises as everyone else you'll get the same results.  Look around - is that what you want?  I didn't think so.  So why are you still doing them?

Most exercises you learn at the gym are repetitive, linear, core-stabilized, mid-range, isolation moves that waste most of your energy and time not focused on results.  The only results that matter are the ones you see in the mirror.  If you're not happy with them, stop wasting your time and make a change.

Breathless and feeling the burn on the first rep

Here's the thing - there are 2 ways to get to breathless and feeling the burn.  You can repeat the same easy boring linear rep until that one small bundle of muscle fibers is exhausted, or you can powerfully activate a massive volume of fibers with new contractions in new dimensions to fire up the mitochondria in all those fibers.  

At the cellular level, it's all about the number of mitochondria (the tiny calorie-burning machines) you stimulate in the time you're working out.  So why not optimize that number with intense moves focused on maximizing muscle fiber stimulation in minimal time?  If you stimulate enough muscle fiber so those mitochondria are screaming for more oxygen, you will know it right away because you will be breathless and feeling the burn on the first rep.

This one shoulder move is designed to laser-focus all of your effort on sculpting those sharp, defined, rippling, individual muscle fiber lines you want to see in the mirror.  The reason is that instead of working one linear group of mid-range fibers to exhaustion, you maintain the intense muscle stimulation in a circumferential multi-dimensional sweep throughout the entire fluid movement.

This intense continuous stimulation is why you will be breathless and feeling the burn on a single rep instead of waiting through 12 or 13 boring reps to get there.  Are you ready?​

Handstand swing-through

The handstand swing-through is a single continuous move that maximally stimulates the muscle fibers surrounding the shoulder joint (deltoids, pecs, and lats) in a circumferential sweeping arc.

This technique gives you far superior results with respect to muscle definition because you're not just stimulating a single set of linear fibers but rather the whole circle of fibers from the pectoralis tendon anteriorly to the full arc of the deltoids over the top and sides of the shoulder to the huge fan-shaped latissimus muscle in back.​

The upswing - all the muscles surrounding the shoulder joint are powerfully contracted circumferentially and isometrically as the ribcage rolls around the shoulder joint and up into the air lifted by the deep core

Downswing - this is a slow, controlled tuck with gravity and the ribcage swings the opposite way, powerfully extending the shoulder lift to keep the feet off the ground

The swing-through

The swing-through is the intense, end-terminal, squeeze-crunch that changes the game with respect to shoulder definition.

Tuck your knees tight as you activate all the shoulder muscles and allow your upper body to slowly descend and swing forward between your arms in a controlled, fluid arc.  As your ribcage rotates around the firmly fixed shoulder joint, every muscle fiber must powerfully contract one-at-a-time because of the circumferential arc of motion.

In order to clear the ground, you need to do 2 things.  First contract your deep core into a tight squeeze.  Then, maximally contract your deltoid, pec, and lat fibers in a lifting motion to propel your ribcage upward while your powerfully straightened arms press firmly into the ground.

The swing-through is an intense deep core crunch combine with a hyper-lift at the shoulder joint to allow the legs and feet to float through between the arms

The "Bruce Lee" finish

Bruce Lee could kick one specific lightbulb out of a chandelier.  I once saw an image of him doing a V-shaped pickup so I tried it - wow is that brutal!  So I call this the "Bruce Lee" finish.

After you swing your feet through, flex your hips into a "V" shape as you extend your legs.  This will swing the ribcage into a backwards tilt at the shoulder.  Holding this position for even a second will powerfully stimulate the deltoid which is stabilizing the entire body weight in the tilted position against the pull of gravity.  You will notice serious strength gains and results in your deltoid fiber definition right away. ​

The "Bruce Lee" V-shaped pickup requires intense contraction of the front deltoid fibers to hold the ribcage swung forward with the legs extended

Looking Great Naked isn't Magic ... It's Science

This one powerful move is designed to maintain an intense isometric contraction through the entire move so you always feel the burn, and your time and effort is laser-focused on results - those sharp, cut lines and angles you want to see in the mirror.  Once you feel that intense burn with every millimeter of the up, down, and swing-thru strokes, and you start seeing those sharp, defined muscle fibers in the mirror, you'll never go back to standard repetitive shoulder exercises.

Face it - if you can't dance naked in front of a mirror and love what you see from every angle then your workouts are a waste of time.  Stop wasting time and energy and start seeing results - learn how to make every move and every second of every workout count.
