How to do Incline Push Ups
TARGETS: Shoulders, Lower Chest & Triceps
- Start in plank position with hands on push up handles.
- Keep elbows tucked close to body.
- Push up while maintaining the plank position.
- Return to start position.
- Repeat until tired.
Place each hand on the elevated push up platform with your palms face down shoulder width apart. Slowly walk your toes backwards until you reach a rigid plank position with your arms fully extended below you. Keep your elbows close to your body while doing the exercise.
From this start position slowly lower yourself towards the ground by bending at the elbow while maintaining the rigid plank position until your chest is in line with the palms of your hands. Once you’ve reached this point, pause for a second and then contract your triceps and chest muscles and push yourself back up to the start position and then repeat the exercise movement. For best results, complete as many repetitions as you can while maintaining proper exercise form.
