Level:

Intermediate

Type:

Compound

Main Muscle:

Chest

Secondary Muscles:

Triceps

Shoulders

Equipment:

Resistance Band

Instructions:

1) Place the resistance on your upper back (right underneath your shoulders).


1) Get in a push-up position where your hands are shoulder width apart at your chest level, legs fully extended, back straight and chest out. Keep your feet close to each other.


You should form a diagonal line starting from your feet to your neck.


2) Inhale and lower yourself down. Keep your elbows slightly flared out from your body. Descend to the point where your chest is almost touching the floor.


3) Exhale and push yourself back to your starting position.


Remember to not fully extend your elbows and lock them at the top of the exercise. This will take away the strain from the muscles and place it on your joints.
