An Arm Exercise for Everyone who wants strong, toned arms

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 the push ups I teach in Functional Fitness, the Power Cat Push-Up is for you.

A Push-Up - A Great Arm ExerciseGreat 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 Bear Crawl

Here’s How To Perform a Power Cat Push-Up

  1. Begin with your hands and knees on the floor. Your spine should be straight. In Yoga, this is known as a Table Pose.
  2. 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 Push-Up.
  3. Inhale while you push yourself back up to the starting position on your hands and knees.
  4. Repeat these steps 3 to 10 times.
