Discover powerful stability with One Legged Push-Ups, a yoga inspired fitness variation of push-ups. This strengthening sequence is for all you skilled yogis and this move will actively target your triceps, chest, shoulders, abs and glutes.
As you continue advancing in your yoga practice, prepare your body for more challenging arm exercises to come with Chaturanga push-ups. This sequence strengthens the muscles surrounding your spine, helping to improve your posture while toning your arms, abs and lower back.
Begin in a Downward Facing Dog (stacking your shoulders in line with your wrists, keeping your hips in line with your knees, tucking your toes, lifting your knees off the floor and taking your hips into the air).
Do give your shoulders a break! In other words, don’t put unnecessary pressure on them. Instead of pulling away from your mat, try pushing up. This adjustment will activate your triceps, letting them do all the hard work.
When in High Plank Pose, make sure to support and stabilize your shoulders by positioning your hands directly underneath your shoulders. To keep your core consistently engaged throughout, stretch your chest forward, keep your heels back and hold your gaze between your hands.
