Incline Push Ups

Incline Push Ups

  • HOW: Get set up in a tall plank position with your hands on an elevated surface. Perform an incline push up with optimal form and arms roughly at a 45° angle from your body. Lower yourself down until your upper arms are parallel to the ground or chest touches the elevated surface, return to starting position and repeat.
 
  • FEEL: This should feel like an upper body workout working your chest, shoulder, and tricep muscles.
 
  • COMPENSATION: Keep a good plank form the entire time, don't let your low back sag/arch. Listen to cues for arm and shoulder blade position.
