Push-ups are a great body weight exercise. Here is how to create a progressive push-up regime. 1. Start off from an inclined platform, place hand shoulder width apart, push up and down. 2. Next, shift to a lower platform using more of your body weight. 3. Move on to using your knees on the ground. 4. Now get on your toes and use your complete upper body strength. 5. Once you've mastered full body push up, start positioning your feet at a higher platform. Higher the raise, harder the push-up.
Push ups are a great body weight exercise! Beginner or advanced, you can progress your push up.
Step 1: You will want to start out on a high wall or platform. Today, I’m going to demonstrate from my balcony. Place your hands, shoulder width apart, lift up on your toes and push up and down.
Step 2: As you get more advanced, you can start on a lower platform, using your body weight.
Step 3: If you’re ready, you can do your Push-Up with your knees on the ground.
Step 4: You are now ready to take those knees off the ground, keeping your core tight, arms straight in a plank position and begin your Push-Up.
Final Step: Once you have mastered all of the steps above, you can now take it even further with a decline Push-up. Remember, the higher your raise your feet or decline, the harder the Push-up. And that is how you progress your push-up!
