Unfortunately, I'm not in a position to take a video right now. If it's needed I'll try getting one in the next day or so. I started with the academy about a month ago and placed into level 2 exercises. I feel like I'm progressing nicely with each of the exercises except Inch Worms which actually feel like they have gotten harder to do. Last week I found out that I was doing wall slides wrong (not pulling my shoulder blades together) as I moved my arms up over my head which made the exercise significantly easier. I am starting to think the reason I may be struggling with Inch Worms may be similar (not engaging a muscle group I should). The following is what I experience throughout the movement, is something here wrong? If I am using the right muscles can you suggest body weight movements to strengthen my biceps and shoulders to be able to properly do this movement? Starting Position - Bend at hip, control decent with back Doubled Over - Weight on feet, stretch of the calves and hamstrings Walk Out - Upper body weight bared by shoulders (Mostly on palms) Fully Extended - Upper body weight bared by top outer bicep and abdomen Walk Back - Upper body weight bared primarily by top outer bicep (fairly uncomfortably) and secondarily by forearms and shoulder (Mostly on finger tips) Doubled Over - Weight on feet, stretch of the calves and hamstrings Standing - Torso lifted by lower back and supported by abdomen
