Press Up Modified Staggered

Start in a modified plank position – hands on the ground, directly under shoulders, knees on the floor. Move one hands forward a pace and one hand back as shown. Squeeze your buttocks and draw your belly button into your spine to activate your core and support your spine. Your eyes should be looking diagonally down and about a yard in front of you to keep your neck in neutral position.

Lower your body keeping your core tight until chest grazes floor. Don’t let your body sag or round. Your body should remain in a straight line from head to knee. Draw shoulder blades back and down, keeping elbows tucked close to your body (don’t “T” your arms).

Keeping core engaged, exhale as you push back to starting position. This completes one repetition.

Top Tips

Imagine you are screwing your hands into the ground as you push back up.

Don’t rush through the exercise, ensure you are controlling the movement throughout.
