Push Up with Hand Raise ALL brooke griffin skinny mom


Step 1: Come into your high plank with your hands slightly outside the shoulders. Zip the legs together and push back through the heels.

Step 2: Walk the feet out slightly until you feel balanced.

Step 3: Exhale and drop into your pushup, lowering the entire body — chest, hips, thighs — all at the same time.

Step 4: Inhale and lift one hand off the mat, stretching it forward like it's shooting straight from the shoulder. Drop it back to the mat as you go into the next push up and repeat the lift on the other side.

Modification: Drop to your knees. You can also try reach the hand forward and tapping the floor instead of reaching upward.
