Target Area: Upper Body
- Position your hands shoulder width apart on a secure bench behind you.
- Slide off the front of the bench with your legs extended out in front of you so that the weight of your body is on your arms/hands.
- Slowly bend your elbows to lower your body toward the floor until your elbows are at a 90-degree angle.
- Once you reach the bottom of the movement, press down into the bench to straighten your elbows, returning to the starting position. Perform for the number of prescribed repetitions.
Add a weight onto your lap or place your feet on a box or step.
Bring your legs closer to your body and put a little weight onto your feet, breaking the movement into two slow and controlled exercises.
