SSM Suspension Trainer – Push Up

 Targets: Pecs, shoulders, triceps

 Difficulty: Beginner

 How to 

Adjust straps to approximately knee level, grab the handles firmly and face away from the anchor point. Hold handles palm facing down. Arms should be straight and inline with your shoulders with a neutral grip. Lower your chest toward the handles, DO NOT go beyond the handles. This will place unnecessary stress on the shoulder joint. Pause at the bottom of the exercise and return back to the starting position while keeping your body rigid.

  • Keep shoulders down away from ears
  • Keep rid cage lifted, spine long, neck neutral
  • Core should be activated at all times
  • Keep movement controlled on the way down

The more you set back your feet from your hands the more difficult the push-up will be!
