Push it!


Target Muscles: chest, triceps, shoulders and core

Set Up: Kneel on a mat with your hands down on the floor wider than shoulder-width apart. Make sure your body forms a diagonal line between your head and your knees. With knees still on the mat, lift your feet off the floor [A].

Action: Bend your elbows and lower your torso, keeping your abs tight and hips lifted. When your chest is close to the mat [B], straighten your arms to return to the start position without locking your elbows. Repeat.

• Don’t let your back sag in the middle.
• Keep your abs tight and your torso rigid.
• For best results, try to push up explosively.
