That “Outside 90” fingers splayed is the strongest frame you can adopt. So you’re going to go ahead, Erica, and you’re going to demonstrate the Outside 90 drill. So the way we set this drill up, guys, and this is important– you guys are going to make sure you’re in non-athletic stances. Ok? That’s not to say that we don’t want you in athletic stances. We’re trying to develop faith in physiology when your body’s at a compromised position or when it’s in its everyday stance. Ok? So the first thing we’re going to do–Mike and Erica are starting squared off. Ok? They’re not starting with their legs splayed. Erica’s going to put her arm across Mike’s chest. Ok? She’s making a fist so she’s already breaking that rule of fingers splayed, but that’s because we’re going to take a look at this. Mike’s going to put his arm around Erica’s shoulders. Ok? Now, they’re both going to turn heads. Ok? Mike’s going to look away from her fist. She’s going to turn towards her fist. The way this drill’s set up is, on go, Mike’s going to ask her if she’s ready, and Erica’s going to try to resist as Mike tries to squeeze her in, and he’s going to apply slow gradual pressure. He’s not going to jump speed. All he’s trying to do is get her arm to try to come in towards her chest. Ok? Alright, so then we see that bend, and just be careful with the fast motion there towards the end. So we see a bend. That’s rep number one. Now rep number two. Erica’s going to rotate her arm so it lines up with Mike’s sternum, pec, clavical. So that natural rotation while she keeps contact– notice that it takes her arm from a 90-degree elbow. Ok, that rotation and making contact with the collarbone takes you to an “Outside 90” arm position. Now she’s going to splay her fingers, and she’s going to look through her hand the same way we were doing on the last drill. Mike’s going to follow the same protocol. He’s going to pull his hands around. He’s going to ask if she’s ready and he’s going to elicit the same pressure. Ok, not bad. Make sure you’re looking through your hand the entire time. Which one was easier? Erica: Second one. The second one, right? Now Mike’s a strong athlete. Has Erica done, you know, any push-ups between rep one and rep two? Right, but yet you see the resistance and the ease with which she’s able to to hold him off at that point. So what I want you guys to do is square up with a partner. Key performance points on this: Look through your hand, ok? When you look down, guys, real quick, keep your eyes on me, when you look down you’re engaging the flexors in your neck, and the extensor chain is weakened. Any time a flexor is engaged you’re pulling away from it, so I want you guys to keep your hands looking. Keep your eye line through your hand. Keep that “Outside 90” finger splayed position, and tell me which one is easier. Go for it. Rep one and rep two.
