Boost Your Pushup Performance – Part 4

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 four of five alternative pushup movements you can do to become a better athlete:

Alligator Lunge:

Assume a push-up position with your arms straight and your hands slightly beyond shoulder width. Simultaneously move your left hand forward and place your right foot next to your right hand. Lower your hips and pause. Repeat using your right hand and left foot. Continue for 15 to 20 metres.
