So here's the second week of #TechniqueTuesdays...
This is where I'll be covering off an exercise, a few pointers to think about when doing it and how you can include it in your training.
Last week we looked at incline press ups and today we're taking a look at press ups from our knees. So if a bench or chair isn't available and we still want to work towards a full press up, this could be added in.
1) Fingers spread out to give you a strong base
2) Elbows at an angle to the body rather than 90 degrees out - imagine you're squeezing juice out of oranges under your armpits
3) Lower yourself with control
4) Keep your core engaged throughout the movement
If you're working towards your first press up, this can be added in alongside exercises such as a dumbbell floor press or plank.
Ideally, we would use incline press ups as they get us used to our body in being in a straight line but sometimes there isn't equipment available to do it from so these are a decent alternative.
Give them a go and let me know how you get on!
