How to: Banded Push-Up
Primary Muscles Used:Chest, Pecs, Triceps
Exercise Families:Horizontal Push
Equipment:Long Resistance Band
- With a resistance band around your back and under your arms, place both hands on a yoga mat slightly further than shoulder-width apart, feet together on the mat behind you while resting on the balls of your feet. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. While maintaining a neutral spine, bend your elbows and lower your torso towards the mat until your arms form two 90-degree angles*. *It is important that there is still some tension in the band when in this position. If there isn’t, you will need to place your hands further down the band.
- Exhale. Push through your chest and extend your elbows to lift your body back into the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
