Tutorial: Suspended Push-Up
27th December 2017
is a functional whole body strength and balance exercise
This suspended push-up exercise uses a bar and strips to hold it and targets the chest, arms, abs and spine stabilization.
It’s a great exercise for those who want to add variety to their chest workout.
With the bar hanged by the strips, hold it on the extremities with your arms extended. The bar must be aligned with your chest.
Try to maintain your trunk as a plank while you move your chest towards the bar, with the elbows pointed outside.
When you’re near the bar (about 10 cm) make some strength against the bar a push your trunk till your elbows are extended again.
Doing the suspended push-up increases functional strength in a full body activation.
Upper body muscles are usually weaker than lower body because nowadays we use it less and less. Push-ups prevent shoulder injury strengthening all trunk muscles.
While you’re pushing-up, your posture will get better and you promote core strength and avoid lower back pain.
