PUSH-UPS WITH ONE LEG SUSPENDED IN STRAP

Preparation

Select maximum resistance level. The strap is attached at one end. Place the lower loop approximately above the ankle. One foot is hooked in. The free leg is parallel to the other.

Starting Position

In the holding position, both legs form a straight line extending from the spine. Wrists are placed under the shoulder joint. Keep the body tensed and do not let the back arch. Look towards floor.

Execution

Lower your body. Keep your body tensed. Legs, torso, and head are all aligned. The elbows point outwards. Lower yourself until your nose nearly touches the floor. Then push yourself up again.

Hint

Switch legs. Perform the movement slowly.

Variants

Increasing the distance from the wall makes the exercise more challenging.

Warning

Insert the blocker only on maximum resistance level.
