PUSHUPS

Jan 1st, 2012

Modified Pushup with Pushup Bars

  1. Kneeling on the floor, place your hands (grip with palms in) on push-up bars which are positioned slightly more than shoulder width apart. Hands should be in same vertical plane as your shoulders (i.e. not in front of or behind your shoulders).
  2. Set your knees further back on the floor and support yourself up with your arms. Arms are positioned straight up from the floor. Your body forms a straight line from your head through your hips to your knees. This is your start position.
  3. Lower your body by bending your elbows until your elbows reach a 90-degree angle.
  4. Then push against the bars to raise your body back up to the start position. Throughout the exercise, maintain the straight line from your head through your hips to your knees.
