Side kick-through

The side kick-through is a full-body movement that involves isometric holds and moving the body through different ranges of motion, beginning in a bear crawl position. The difference between a side kick-through and a sit-through is that your butt stays off the ground throughout the entire rep. It is commonly performed in bodyweight circuits and animal-style flows, but can also work for reps on its own or as part of a dynamic warm-up or mobility sequence.


  1. Increases thoracic mobility and core bracing
  2. Increases core strength, as well as full-body coordination and balance
  3. Trains shoulder extension and stability
  4. Greater challenge to obliques than sit-through
