December 2020 Exercise Library Additions

Pump your fists if you are ready for 2020 to be over with. We are so close everyone – hang in there!

Before we end this dumpster-fire of a year, I was able to squeeze in one more bulk upload to the BPM Rx exercise library.

This upload builds on the last addition, and has some great illustrations. Many of the new images come directly from user requests, including:  

  • Cervical/upper extremity nerve gliding
  • Arm hurdles (scapulothoracic stability and mobility)
  • TRX-style suspension movements such as chest presses, mountain climbers, high rows, atomic push-ups, regular push-ups, squats, and overhead tricep extensions (aka “skull crushers”)

In terms of bodyweight-only movements, the new exercise illustrations include:

  • Heel-elevated air squats
  • Elevated reverse lunges (aka a “deficit” reverse lunge)
  • Jackknife push-ups from a plyo box
  • Plank pelvis rotations (core strength)
  • Plank toe touches (core strength + warm-up)
  • Side plank crunches
  • Straddle leg lifts (hip flexor strength + mobility, a gymnastics favorite)
  • Swivel hips (warm-up and mobility drill)
  • Kick and clap (warm-up/calisthenics)
  • Tiptoe squats
  • Single leg v-ups

There were also a handful of barbell and kettlebell movements, like:

  • Barbell kang squats
  • Lateral landmine rows
  • Landmine squats
  • Kettlebell ground rows
  • Kettlebell goblet squat presses
  • Trap bar deadlifts (aka “hex bar” deadlifts)

Likewise, some more resistance band and dumbbell movements were added, such as:

  • Band 3-point rows
  • Band Bulgarian split squats
  • Single arm dumbbell rows (unsupported)
  • Supported single arm dumbbell rows (aka “kroc” rows)

All in, this upload contains 30 new exercise images. The turn-around time from making an image request to having it uploaded is starting to speed-up!

If you know of an exercise that you would like added to the software library, please let me know.

I have a few more resistance band and landmine exercises, that are on my radar to add. But, like I said, I’m always open to suggestions. Send your requests to

Have a great Christmas and happy holidays everyone!
