Weighted Push Up
SETS: 3-4 X 8 – 10
In order, to complete the perfect Weighted Push Up, follow these simple tips and tricks. Keep in mind that your body and the weights are all elements of one compound formation.
Setting the scene:
1 Plank on the ground with your palms a couple of inches wider than your average shoulder width at the line of your lower chest
2 Load the weights over your back on the thoracic zone of your spine
3 Keep your upper body and your legs straight all the time. Stick your butt out. Keep your head straight
1 Lower your body down a couple of inches above the ground. Inhale
2 Push your body up. Exhale
A word of experience:
Consciously contract your targeted muscle group for additional activation
Keep an angle at about 75 degrees between your upper arms and the ribcage
That should be it! Now you’re ready for your set.
Remember: always crave for one more rep after finishing every set!
It’s your turn!
