Exercise of The Week: Dive to Push up

dive-pushup

Who wants to do push ups even more evil than usual? This girl! Well, It isn’t more evil but it does make a difference. This week we are doing the diver push up. So let’s get going. First you are going to place your hands shoulder-width apartand extend your legs. Now raise your hips up. Make sure to keep your arms straight and back flat. You should now look like (A) or as close to it as you can.  Now here is the fun part…In one motion, lower your hips so that your body forms a straight line (you should look like you are the start of a regular push up), Now you should lower your body down into a regular push up. You will now look like (B). Reverse the movement to return to start position. That is one rep. See, not that bad right?  Add 10-15 of these you your regular workout!
