Video Text - Pushups with Rotation


The exercise of the week is called Pushup with Rotation. My client Mark is here and he’s going to perform the exercise while I’ll explain it.

So, Mark, I’m going to have you get on the floor, dumbbells in hand, nice long line. Come down into a pushup and then you’re going to rotate to one side with your dumbbells in your hand. Pushup again and rotate to the other side. As you can see, this is very difficult do perform.

Now, if you need to regress this exercise, all you need to do is take the dumbbells away and you’re going to perform a pushup, come up, rotate, pushup, rotate. Much easier.

This exercise works the whole upper body—your chest, shoulders and your triceps. Plus it also works your entire core area.

This exercise again is called Pushup with Rotation. My name is Maurie Cofman and I can be reached at 314-517-1565.
