Suspension Strap Push Up (Side to Side)

  • Intermediate
  • Suspension Trainer
  • Chest

Setup instructions

1) Start with a high anchor point and attach the suspension strap - it should be a long length.

2) Go on all fours and place your feet through the handles.

3) Get in the plank position - from here, walk your hands forward and lift your hips up. Aim to have a straight line between your head, neck, legs and back.

Perform instructions

1) Slowly lower your chest to the ground - make sure your elbows are behind your shoulders.

2) Pause at the bottom, then 'push up' (think as if you're pushing the ground away) until you're back in the plank.

3) Step your right hand in and left hand out. Push up from this position.

4) Follow this pattern and repeat in the opposite direction.
