i love that barrowman’s response also distances him from the contestant "hahahaha women do laundry right john? you with me, john?" "don’t lump me in with you, you fucking martian”
This is what I’m talking about when I keep saying that men have to deny the endorsement. This guy wanted Barrowman’s tacit support or agreement for his sexism, as part of bonding through humour. John went nope.
What you’re supposed to do: Think of this pose as a halfway pushup. Basically, it’s where you start in a plank position but then you lower yourself halfway into a pushup position, so you’re really working your core.
The mistake you’re probably making: It requires a ton of strength to stay in this position, so most people end up basically just plopping to the floor—or almost plopping to the floor. The common mistake here is that people let their hips drop because it’s easier. But that puts a huge strain on your lower back, and it also means that you’re not working your core as much, which is one of the main purposes of this move.
The fix: Concentrate on keeping your elbows tucked in by your ribs at a right angle, and keeping your shoulders down—not by your ears. Both of those tricks will help you keep your hips up and your core engaged, so you don’t collapse into a heap on the floor.
