How To Perform a Modified Press Up

Friday, May 31, 2013

Press ups (or push ups as we call them in America) are great for building upper body strength.  This example if for a modified press up at an incline, which makes the move a little easier.  You can use a counter top, study desk, wall, or bench to get stronger before trying it on the ground.

1.  Start with your body in a straight line and shoulders over your hands.

2.  The pivot point is your toes.  You will be rocking back and forth on them.
3.  Lower your chest to the bench/counter/wall by bending elbows.  Keep body straight (do not bend at the waist).

4.  Exhale as you push yourself back up to starting position.
