Muscles flex and waiver
Chin down, head straight..now lift.
Steady. Hold. Fingers Stuck.
Elbows in. Back straight. Wrists strong.
Chin to the ground. Breathe.
Hold. Steady. Toes stuck.
Hold it. Hold it!
Flat on the Ground.
Think of its motion as mirroring the cyclical, up-and-down nature of existence, almost Sisyphean in movement. Often, as in life, you are pushing against your own weight, seeking to overcome self-imposed limits. To perform it well, it takes backbone – both literally and in terms of fortitude. Sam McManis
