Add intensity to traditional pushups by moving. As its name suggests, the walking pushup means that you walk your hands from one side to the other using a stationary object to mark your position. This exercise engages the core and stability muscles.
How It’s Done
Begin in a pushup position, on the knees or toes.
- Perform a pushup, lowering until the elbows are at 90-degree angles and, as you press upward, walk the left hand to the left and the right hand the stationary object.
- Perform another pushup, this time walking the hands to the right so that the left hand is once again on the stationary object.
- Continue pushups, alternating walking the hands to either side for a total of 10-12 reps (1 rep includes walking to the right and left).
Tips & Warnings
No slouching. Keep that back straight.
