PUSH UPS TECHNIQUES
The starting position is facing down with weight distributed on the hands and feet. The body is rigid and straight, and the hands are usually placed approximately shoulder width apart (the plank position). Lower your body until your chest nears the floor at the bottom of the movement, and then return up to the starting position. This is one repetition. Remember to move in a nice fluid motion, keeping the core muscle groups activated. Breathe out on the way down, and breathe in as you come back up.
Close Hand Push Ups
Lie on the floor face down and body straight with your toes on the floor and the hands wider than shoulder width for a wide hand position and closer than shoulder width for a close hand position. Make sure you are holding your torso up at arms length.Lower yourself until your chest almost touches the floor as you inhale.Using your pectoral muscles, press your upper body back up to the starting position and squeeze your chest. Breathe out as you perform this step.After a second pause at the contracted position, repeat the movement for the prescribed amount of repetitions.
Wide Push Ups:
With your hands wide apart, support your body on your toes and hands in a plank position. Your elbows should be extended and your body straight. Do not allow your hips to sag. This will be your starting position.To begin, allow the elbows to flex, lowering your chest to the floor as you inhale.Using your pectoral muscles, press your upper body back up to the starting position by extending the elbows. Exhale as you perform this step. After pausing at the contracted position, repeat the movement for the prescribed amount of repetitions.
Diamond Push Ups:
Place your hands under your chest and make a diamond shape. Touch your forefingers together and your thumbs together. This forms your diamond, also known as a pyramid. Lower yourself to the ground, then push up. Keep your back straight and tense your abs and chest. Make sure to keep your fingers in the correct diamond position. Repeat.
Decline Push Ups
Lie on the floor face down and place your hands about 36 inches apart while holding your torso up at arms length. Move your feet up to a box or bench. This will be your starting position.Next, lower yourself downward until your chest almost touches the floor as you inhale.Now breathe out and press your upper body back up to the starting position while squeezing your chest.After a brief pause at the top contracted position, you can begin to lower yourself downward again for as many repetitions as needed.
Incline Push Ups
Stand facing bench or sturdy elevated platform. Place hands on edge of bench or platform, slightly wider than shoulder width. Position forefoot back from bench or platform with arms and body straight. Arms should be perpendicular to body. Keeping body straight, lower chest to edge of box or platform by bending arms. Push body up until arms are extended. Repeat.
Clap Push Ups
When doing push-ups, keep your body perfectly aligned, with your arms around shoulder width apart. Lower yourself slowly (it should take 1-2 seconds) until your chest is 3 inches (7.6 cm) from the ground, pause for 1 second, and then push back up quickly.
