Layered Push Up

on August 10, 2012

This is an upper body and multitasking exercise…both of which are needed in motherhood!

DIRECTIONS: Get into push up position on either the knees or feet. Place one hand directly under the shoulder joint and the other out into a traditional position. Lower down into the push up with one elbow shooting straight back while the other bends to the side. Switch hands and repeat on the other side.

REMEMBER:

• Keep elbows soft at the top of the movement
• Keep belly tight and body in a straight line
• Head stays in alignment with the spine
 • B R E A T H E

MODIFICATIONS:
To make this less intense, perform the push ups on your knees and/or stick with one version of the movement — not both. For wrist pain, opt instead for a chest press with the tubing.
