    Requesting an addition to the video exercise library

    To give out a bit of context, yesterday I was going for the third day of the Military fit program. The thing is, I never really encountered one of the exercises included in this day's workout, the upward dog stretch, but I carried on thanks to the illustration nonetheless. BUT. The thing is, after the first set being done, I looked up a few YouTube videos as I was kind of dumbfounded as for why would this exercise would tire my triceps so quickly, and it appears I - big surprise - did it the wrong way. Or, at least, not in the way this exercise was supposed to be done according to the videos I saw on youtube.

    To explain what I did, here's a video I shot:

    And here's a video I shot of how, according to Youtube, I was supposed to do it:

    The version of the exercise I did is... kinda like triceps extensions? I mean, it definitely puts a strain on the arms for sure. On the other side, the version I picked up on YouTube was way less traumatizing for my articulations, which to me makes more sense since the exercise was part of a series of back exercises in the middle of a really triceps-heavy workout. Giving it the use of a placeholder of sorts, while the arms recuperate.


    All in all, nothing is really bad about all this, i might have strained one of my elbows a bit but hey, that happens, it's my bad and I'll be more careful on the future. What I wanted to get out of this post is, I'd like to ask for the Darebee team to give an alternate way for people like me to avoid being confused; it could be,
    1) Shooting a video showing the proper way this exercise is supposed to be done and putting it in the video library (I didn't find any when I searched for one yesterday)
    2) Maybe adding a sequence in the illustration, maybe an arrow to show what muscles are supposed to work in this

    Tl;Dr : Will the Darebee team be able to add a video for the "Upward Dog Stretch" exercise, as in the one featured in the Military Fit program, third day, to the video exercise library?



    Have a good day fellow bees!

    Solar hi I'm a level 2 fitness instructor and have dabbled in martial arts and know of the exercise you are referring to. The way you did it was correct and the video from YouTube was incorrect. This exercise is called a judo push up/dive bomber push up.

      Sorry, Kakarot , but Solar is right here. The exercise he did in his first video is a dive bomber push-up indeed... but if you look at day 3 of Military Fit, he was really supposed to do an upward dog stretch instead, which doesn't nearly put as much strain on the triceps, and in this particular sequence, offers some relief before tackling another series of push-ups.

      This exercise (the upward/downward dog sequence) is pretty common in yoga and can be found in a lot of youtube videos, which is probably why Damer and neilarey haven't prioritized its inclusion in the Darebee video library. But since the picture can be misleading and doesn't actually show you how to transition from one position to another, it may be a good idea to add it when they can find the time.

      Thank you for your detailed feedback, Solar!

        Oh. I forgot about upward dog. My bad Solar.
