Pilates Ring Push Up (Knees Down)

  • Beginner
  • Pilates Ring
  • Chest

Setup instructions

1) Start on your knees and lean forward onto the floor. Extend your arms but keep a slight bend in your elbows - aim for your hands to be directly under your chest. You should be in a plank position with your knees down - keep the core tight and tuck the hips in.

2) Place the pilates ring on the floor and rest your chest on it.

Perform instructions

1) Lower your chest to the ground - make sure the elbows are behind your shoulders and tucked into your sides.

2) Pause at the bottom. Now, 'push up' (think as if you're pushing the ground away) and return to the starting position.

3) Repeat.
