Exercise Demo for Upper Body and Core Strength


Try this variation of the standard push-up in your next workout. This move targets the chest muscles, like the standard version, but it is also is great for your core, shoulders and arms. As you rotate from side to side, your abdominal muscles are engaged. Alternating the arms engages the shoulders and triceps in a different way.

Set goals by fitness level:
Beginner: 5-10 reps*
Intermediate: 10-20 reps
Advanced: 20-30 reps

*Rotate to each side to equal one rep.
