A new variation to the everyday push up exercise. Alternating push ups will not only add variety to you existing routine but challenge your body a little further.
Get down on the floor, with your hands and toes in a push up position. With a step on the left side of your body, contract your abs, place your left hand on the step as your right hand remains on the ground. Lower your body in a push up, going as low as you can without breaking form. Push back to the start position and repeat. After 10 reps change sides (walking your hands over the step and onto the ground on the other side) and repeat on the other side. Keep repeating this exercise for 2 minutes.
Note: If you need to intensify, change hands after each rep. If you can’t manage a full push up yet try doing the whole thing on your knees and build up to a full push up version.
In this section, you will find a collection of various exercises as well as tips and information on proper form.
