Weekly Wednesday Workout: Elbow Push ups

Today we work on the upper body!

httpv://youtu.be/K7InUqXlExw

I would be telling fibs if I told you that this is my favorite kind of push up, because its not. As a matter of fact my trainer makes me do these every time I see him (he has no mercy). Usually to get through a minute there may or may not be a hefty amount of swearing and pouting. With that said, these are highly effective because you are working so much all at the same time! The upper body by going up and down, the core which is supporting the entire movement, and of course the back muscles are getting love too!

Have you ever tried Elbow Push ups?

These definitely were a favorite of mine when I was teaching my strength classes! I may have been the only one 🙂 It’s actually cool when people make the move from holding plank to THIS. They almost always regret it, but their bodies love it!!

Yup, not a fan either, but you are right they do work wonders and are a bit of a necessary evil, I suppose 😉

These are the kind of exercise that looks so much easier than it is, aren’t they? Must try with my strength workout tomorrow!

Ugh, I have tried these. Note: tried.
Dinah likes to sleep on my computer while I work and she got scared by the video!
I guess kittens are lousy at pushups.
