Narrow Pushups – 15
Straddle Plank Lean w Alt Foot Raise – 3 x 20 secs
Straddle Plank Lean w Alt Knee Tuck – 2 x 20 secs
Tuck Planche w SL Support – 2 x 20 secs
Straddle Sit – 4 x 15 secs

I went through a few of the progressions on my way to a tuck planche, starting with a straddle plank lean and raising one foot for 5 secs then changing feet. Did the same but brought the leg in to a tucked knee. Both of these were easy enough that I felt I needed to focus on something else if I’m going to strengthen my position.

Stir The Pot – 4 x 30 secs

I tried bringing in both knees from the straddle into a tuck and that felt quite nice, and I could only hold for 2 secs so I counted those as “reps” of that motion. I tried tuck planche and can hold 5-6 secs but it doesn’t feel right, and feedback on Insta was that I should try more of an arm lean, which I’ll need anyway to get to a full planche. Finished with stir the pot on a swiss ball.

Here’s my (brief) tuck planche:
