A push-up is not only a great arm exercise, but it
will work your entire body as well. However, if your fitness level at
this time does not allow you to perform a more advanced pushup, such as
ups I teach in Functional Fitness, the Power Cat Push-Up is
Great for Beginners
The reason for this is that you begin the Power Cat Push-Up in a yoga
position known as the Table. This means that more of your bodyweight is
support by your legs, relieving some of the stress on your arms. Once
you can do this exercise with ease, you can move on to a more advanced
exercise like the Indoor
Here’s How To Perform
a Power Cat Push-Up
- Begin with your hands and knees on the floor.
Your spine should be straight. In Yoga, this is known as a Table
- Take a deep breath. As you exhale, bend your
elbows, lowering your chest to the floor. If you can’t get
all the way down at first, don’t worry about it. Just lower
yourself down far enough until you get push yourself back up again.
Before you know it, you’ll be doing the full Power Cat
- Inhale while you push yourself back up to the
starting position on your hands and knees.
- Repeat these steps 3 to 10 times.
