Personal Trainer Rich Thurman from San Francisco demonstrates an Advanced level Pushup to T and Reach.
Instructions: Start with hands directly under the shoulders like the Strict Pushup
-Engage the core and keep a completely flat position of the back in a plank position.
-Slowly descend bending the elbows.
-Push back upwards into a planked position and lift the left or right arm off the floor/ground opening towards the sky. Keep the core engaged the entire time.
Advanced Level 1: You may return to do another pushup and open to the other side.
Advanced Level 2: You can immediately take the arm that is free down and under the body, reaching through to the other side before conducting another pushup.
Note: It is important that an beginner or intermediate athlete prep by simply doing activities that simply require lifting the arms from the ground first. Also doing exercises like the Plank and Side Plank will help strengthen the necessary muscles for this exercise.
Benefits: The Push Up to T and Reach is great for Core, Shoulder and Hip Stability.
Muscles worked: Shoulders, Abs, Core, Chest, Arms, Back.
