Boost Your Pushup Performance – Part 3

Pushups are good for you. Period. Not only does the movement engage a host of muscle groups – including chest, shoulders, upper back, triceps, forearms and core – but they will boost your all round athletic performance says US weightlifter Jeremy Frisch.

According to Frisch – owner of Achieve Performance Training – “your hands and feet are covered with sensors which provide feedback about limb position and alignment,” meaning that the more you engage your hands and feet in ground-based exercises, the greater the boost you will see in your all round athletic performance.

Here is the third of five alternative pushup movements you can do to become a better athlete:

Straight-leg Crab Hip Raise:

Sit with your heels on a bench, your butt on the floor and your weight supported on your hands. Raise your hips so your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your feet. Pause, and then lower your hips back down (but don’t let them 
touch the floor). That’s one rep. Do 10 to 12.
