🔥 Pushups on knees
Perfect Push-Up Form
To perform a traditional push-up, start by lying on your stomach. Place your palms flat on the floor, centered under your shoulders, with your fingers pointed forwards.
Then, lift your body off the floor, supporting yourself on your toes and palms with your body held in a straight line from your head to your heels. As you raise and lower your body in a push-up, keep your elbows out and don’t let your middle sag. Repeat this exercise until your muscles start to lose some of their stability from fatigue.
Pushups on knees x 15 – DR friendly, pregnancy friendly option use a kitchen bench.
✅ HOW TO:
Lie prone on floor with hands slightly wider than shoulder width. Bend knees and raise body up off floor by extending arms with body straight.
Keeping body straight and knees bent, lower body to floor by bending arms. Push body up until arms are extended. Repeat.
- Knee push ups don’t let you recruit muscles of the lower body, which will lead to unnecessary stress on the shoulders, elbows and wrists.
- Knee push ups don’t allow you to recruit the correct muscles and will not prepare you for push ups on your toes.
