T Push Up

  • Intermediate
  • Body weight
  • Chest

Setup instructions

1) Get in the plank position - start on all fours and extend your legs back behind you. Place your hands directly under your shoulders, extend the arms with a slight bend. 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, shift the weight to your left side and twist your body towards the ceiling - this will cause your right arm to come off the floor and to scissor your legs. Lift your right arm up towards the ceiling - aim for a straight line between both arms.

4) Pause for a second, then lower your arm back down and twist your torso to get back into the plank.

5) Repeat.
