"Forward Pressure" is an example of Sonnon at his most useful and accessible. While most so-called "fitness gurus" specializing in bodyweight exercise recommend simply performing hundreds of reps of various pushups, Sonnon truly "sophisticates" bodyweight upper body exercise with a scalable, integrated set of floor movements that both challenge the body AND respect its natural frame of reference. Let"s face it, most people can"t do 100"s of pushups every day without suffering eventual shoulder/rotator cuff injury, no matter how many different kinds they do (Hindus, Divebombers, one armed, Tigers, etc), and its boring as hell after a while. With his usual flair for "sophisticating" movment, Sonnon gets around this by altering the "frame" of the exercises in such a way that this problem is avoided almost entirely. He shows a scalable, progressive flow form that mimics much of the Hatha yoga "Sun Salute", but with an upper body emphasis, and in three dimensions and six directions. More importantly, he also teaches "corrections" to the form, corrective exercises that will offset any potential imbalances caused by working FP. This is in sharp contrast to most so-called "fitness routines", which can often lead to unexpected imbalances in the soft tissues of the would-be fitness enthusiast.These corrective exercises may be the best part of the DVD, such are their wide application to undoing the harm that years of unbalanced, slump-shouldered living can cause.
