Press Up Exercises

5 min read

A simple exercise that can be performed anywhere, with no equipment, working the chest, core, triceps and shoulders, all at once.

Coaching points:

  • Lie down on your front and place your hands by the side with your thumbs in line with your lower chest
  • With your arms around 45 degrees from your body, push the floor away to full extend your arms
  • Engage your glutes and your core to ensure your body moves as a unit i.e. hips and shoulders move up and down together
  • Lower yourself in a controlled movement
