Okay. First exercise we’re going to do is the dive bomber push-up.
Now like all the other push-up variations this works shoulders, it works the chest. It works the triceps, back of the arms. It works all through the core both of the front and of the back.
And the dive bomber push-up in particular is good for your mobility as well.
So this is how you do it.
So, you start in a kind of a push-up position but with your feet a bit closer to your hands. So your buttocks, your bum is in the air.
From here you’re going to drop your nose down just slightly above the ground.
Before the hands drop down, chest next, then the sternum, up to the hips and look up towards the sky.
And we push the hips back. And that’s one repetition.
So if we go down again try put the nose down before the hands. So if you imagine a line drawing between the hands. Going to try to get your nose down before there as possible.
So down we go. Keep the elbows in. Chest, hips, back up.
Let’s do one more.
Before the hands keep your elbows in. Chest hips and back up.
As for breathing in this position, you breathe out as you go down. Take a deep breath in, and then breathe out as you go down again.
You are going to do 10 repetitions of the dive bomber push-up.
If you find it too difficult to get all the way down, just go down slowly, shallower, and progress deeper and deeper as you get stronger in that position.
Best of luck.
