Tired of doing push-ups? Maybe they’re too easy for you. Or maybe you want to mix-in a different exercise to your upper body training routine. This week’s exercise of the week, the T Push-up, can be done anywhere. It can be made more difficult by adding in dumbbells or by moving the weight of the dumbbells up. And it’s a great exercise that will target almost every muscle in your upper body, while promoting “core” (an overused term which will be discussed in further blog) strength and stability.
Perform the exercise by starting in a normal push-up position (with or without dumbbell’s). As you push yourself off the floor, rotate one arm up towards the ceiling while posting your body on the other arm. In the top position you should resemble a “T”. Return to the starting position, and then repeat on the other side.
