Toned Tuesday #3: Chatturanga Pushups
OH MAN, these are BEYOND killer! They look simple and a liiiiittle obvious, but seriously: they’re my arch nemesis right now. I’ve been adding these to my flows in my personal practice and they’re making a serious impact on my posture AND the definition in my upper body.
Shallow? Maybe. But I’m just being honest here 😉
Let’s get to it! Your mini challenge will be to do 15 without stopping. Feel to repeat if you have the strength!
Step 1: GET READY! Come to your hands and knees, but shift your weight forward so the knees end up slightly behind the hips. Make sure the wrists are under the shoulders and the fingers face forward. Draw the belly in.
Step 2: Get low. On an exhale, bring the chest down between the elbows until the arms are at a 90 degree angle. Make sure the elbows stay hugged in tight towards the body so you’re isolating the triceps. Inhale and come back up to where you started.
Over to you! What did you think? Super tough or did you own this? I feel like no matter how many times I do this, it’s STILL a challenge!
