Medicine Travelling Push Up

  • Intermediate
  • Medicine Ball
  • Chest

Setup instructions

1) Get in the plank position - start on all fours and extend your legs back behind you. Place your left hand on the medicine ball and the other on the floor - directly under your chest. Keep the core tight, back flat, head neutral and tuck the hips in.

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) Now, place your left hand on the floor and your right hand on the ball.

4) Follow this pattern and repeat.

Note: the ball should be stationary throughout the exercise.
