Everything you need to know about Candlesticks  

If I had a dollar for the amount of times people told me they have a hard time with candlesticks then I would be a rich lady. 

This is NOT an easy movement but its SUCH a good one not only for your glutes but for that core! 

 

The Form

  • Starting standing tall
  • Sit straight down and allow your legs to rise up the ceiling 
  • Swing those legs down and bend them so your feet land right above your butt cheeks on the floor
  • Lean forward and stand up! Rinse and repeat! 

Hardest part people have is standing up! A LOT of this can be due to hip mobility so make sure you get a GOOD warm-up before starting 

Few things that are SUPER helpful with this: 

  1. Pretend like you are going to do a forward roll 
  2. Just go up as to as high as you can and lift your butt a little off the gorund 
  3. Grab onto a buddy on the way up
  4. Use a coach to increase the height you are rolling from so that you can get the idea and feeling of how to stand up 
  5. Fold your mat to get the same effect 
  6. Practice Hollow Rocks to learn how to roll properly 

 

KEEP PRACTICING...It seems impossible but once you keep at it and you DO stand up! It's an amazing feeling.
