Sandbag Incline Push Up

  • Intermediate
  • Sandbag
  • Chest

Setup instructions

1) Put the sandbag on the floor and place your hands on it.

2) Get in the plank position - hands directly under your chest and extend your legs back behind you. You're aiming for a straight line between your neck, back and legs - keep the core tight 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) Repeat.
