Exercise of The Week: Inverted Shoulder Press
Sometimes putting a twist on a classic can really spice up your routine. I believe last week I showed you a variation of a pushup called the grasshopper push up (link below) and this week I think I will show you something else that builds on a push up…the inverted shoulder press. This exercise requires no equipment because you are using your own body weight, yet it still gives you an excellent shoulder work out! So how do you do it?
You are going to start in a regular push up position, but make sure your hands are wider than your shoulder width. Then here comes the fun part…you are going to move your feet towards your hands until you are in what should look like an upside down V. You should now look like A. Next you are going to bend your elbows (like you would in a push up) until your head almost touches the floor. You should now look like B. Hold that for at least 5 seconds and then push back up. That is one rep. See that is all there is too it. Do at least 2 sets of 8-10, but like I always say listen to your body. If you find these hard at first just do however many you can, and eventually add more.
Good luck 🙂Other Exercises: Grasshopper Push Up Balance Fly Plank on an exercise ball Dumbbell Chop Dumbbell Swing Jackknife sit-up Bent Over Row 30 Day Fitness Challenges: Ax Chop Dumbbell swing Jackknife sit ups Russian Twist Just Abs Challenge Squats Dumbbell squat thrust
