Overview

The push-up performed with your feet elevated and using a resistance band for added difficulty will strengthen your chest, shoulder, and triceps. You can perform this exercise at home or at the gym. To increase the difficulty select a resistance band that is less elastic and provides more tension. Keep your core tight and back straight as you raise and lower yourself.

Description

  • Wrap the elastic band around your back.
  • Secure both ends of the band in your hands.
  • Elevate your feet on a box, bench or chair.
  • Get into a push up position.
  • Keep your head, neck and body aligned in a straight line.
  • Lower yourself as far as you can by bending your arms.
  • Push back up to the top.

Mistakes

  • Dropping the head
  • Letting the body sag, especially the low back
  • Holding the hips up too high
