  • How to do the T Push-up

    Breathe some life into the standard push-up and build additional strength in the chest, shoulders, arms and core in one fluid movement.

    To perform the T Push-up exercise:

    1. Lie face down on the floor supported by your hands in the standard push-up position.
    2. Perform a powerful push-up and at the top of the exercise lift one arm from the floor and raise towards the ceiling whilst twisting your torso to the side. Roll onto the sides of your feet and keep your body straight at all times.
    3. Return to the starting position.
    4. Repeat but this time raise the opposite arm and alternate arms to complete the set.

    Beginning the T Push-up

    If you're struggling with the T Push-up you should develop the necessary strength and stability skills with the standard push-ups first.

    Advanced T Push-ups

    When you've outgrown the T Push-up and performing multiple repetitions without breaking a sweat you can try the exercise whilst holding some light dumbbells for added resistance to seriously hike up the intensity of the exercise.
