Introduction Every exercise has its own purpose. When you try to select them, also try, in addition to targeting, adjusted difficulty level and all other training legality to be innovative and add some of your complexity. Let the exercise challenge you, or better, you have to challenge the exercise.
Objective Strengthening the muscles of the upper body especially arm muscles, shoulder girdle, pectoral muscles and upper back.
Performance Take the position of an inverted "V" leaning on the toes and hands (fist). It is important that both sides are in a straight line, especially the upper body, meaning torso and arms. Legs should be apart and arms in the width of your shoulders. In this position, perform push ups. Using the Kinetic BANDS, the complexity of the exercise will greatly increase.
Breathing Breathe when descending towards the floor and exhale when you rise to the original starting position.
Advice The muscles of the entire body should be at their maximum tension, so that although the challenging descent towards the ground and the subsequent rise in the initial position, the body still firmly remains in the shape of an inverted "V" and is kept in a straight line.
Number of repetitions It is particularly important to be aware of your capabilities. So always give priority to quality over quantity. Do as many perfect and quality Push Ups as you can and at the end add one more. We suggest to start with 3 or 4 repetitions and maybe two series 3x a week, and then increase the number of repetitions every two weeks for one more.
Progression At the maximum descent hold the position for two seconds and then move the outstretched leg on the side and back to the original position. Then lift the body and carry out a new iteration.
