Uneven Push Ups

This is a very advanced exercise that targets the triceps, shoulders and chest!

“Don’t let your body burn out before the next set! “pushing up” to your feet requires chest and tricep strength. “

Difficulty Level: Advanced Strength

Muscle Group(s): Triceps, shoulder and chest. Great for core stability

Equipment: BOSU, or inflated disc

Progression: Raise one leg off the floor, have friend sit on back, or place feet on another BOSU

Preparation: Place one hand on the BOSU, one hand in push up position on floor.
Legs extended on floor, feet together.

Movement:
 
 

PushUPBosu1

From the start position, lower chest to ground, keep head down and in a nuetral position, and push up back to start position.PushUp2

Push up with the strength of your entire shoulder girdle back to a straight-arm position.
 
Repeat movement sequence for recommended repetitions, switch.

 
NOTE: wider hand postion = more chest action, a narrower position = more tricep involvment   
You’ll really feel this, so take it slow at first.  Good luck! Tom Callan, surfer and SUP enthusiast makes it look easy!
