Exercise of The Week: Grasshopper Push Up

grasshopper-pushupSo this week I thought it would be fun to take show a classic push up with a twist. I found this lovely exercise from a muscle fitness website and though it was so neat! You need no equipment and don’t need to do complicated moves to see results! This exercise works various muscle groups such as you core and shoulders and again it is pretty easy to do.

So how do you begin? Start out in the push up position (if you are not familiar with a basic push up click here.). Your palms should be on the floor, arms extended, and your back straight. You should look like A. Now jump forward so that you are straddling your hands, you should make sure your bottom is pointing downward. You should look like B. Jump back to start position and perform a regular push up. That’s it, that’s one rep. Do 10 . Simple right? Nothing like adding a little jump into your exercises to give it new life!
