How To Do A Push Up With QWellness – Instruction Video
Check out our video showing you how to do a a push up; using both simplified and advanced options!
For our third instalment of the free QWellness instruction video series we’re showing you how to do the perfect push up! The push up is an excellent exercise to build strength and stability in the core region. It is essentially a dynamic (aka movement based) plank. Combined with the mountain climber exercise and the squat it is perfect as part of a 10-20 minute circuit, at home, when travelling, or in the office. After a delicious Q Cafe Company lunch of course!
In the video we show you how to make the push up simpler by elevating it. As you grow in strength and confidence you can drop down to a lower elevation, gradually moving towards the floor.
We are running our internal nationwide All Ireland QWellness Games. You can get involved too!! The challenge is:
How many reps of the push up can you achieve in 1 minute?
Can you be our All Ireland Champion for push ups?
