Tips

  1. Don't stop at anytime during the exercise. Allow yourself to drop into a push-up after moving your hands each time.
  2. Be sure to exhale as you push up and and inhale on the way down.
  3. Do not let hips sag down. Your entire body should be in a straight line.

Variations

  1. Once your hands leave the ground immediately try to clap them together in the air (of course if you don't get a lot of air off the ground this will need to be done more quickly to avoid falling on face).

    These are killer! At first I thought it was just a regular push-up with hands on a raised box so you could drop down with a deeper range of motion. Boy was I in for a surprise when I found out the right way! Took a while, but I was eventually able to pound out 3 sets of 10! These are a real gut check, and you will be able to feel any weak points in your chest (the upper regions for me) pretty quick!
