Resisted Push Ups With Flat Bands
Area Targeted: Middle Chest
Learn set-up, movements and points to remember below:
Anchor: Not required
Bands: Not required
Body Positioning: Wrap the bands(s) around your body so that the band(s) are around your back. Now lay on the floor and place your palms over the bands(s), on each side, so that there is no slack. Your hands should be about 20 inches apart with fingers pointed overhead. Keep your back straight, legs straight and head straight.
Push off the floor and raise your body until your arms are straight. Slowly return to the starting position. Repeat.
Points To Remember
1. Do not let your buttocks push up or sag down during the movement. Your body should be straight, like a board from your head to your feet.
2. When you lower your body, stop when your upper arms are parallel with the floor.
