Yoga Exercise Tips: Push-Up Pose
This exercise combines the strength of the legs and core with the strength of the arms and shoulders. Hold this pose 5-15 seconds, with repetitions of 5-10.
To perform this exercise correctly:
1. Keep the arms in, shoulder distance apart with fingers spread apart, hands pointing forward
2. Start with arms straight, keeping the spine aligned (keeping the head, shoulders, pelvis and toes straight).
3. Make sure to keep the legs and stomach tight throughout the range of motion.
4. Slowly lower the body by bending the elbows (keeping the elbows into your side) to 90 degrees and hold for the recommended time
Slowly extend the arms to starting position
