The exercise is an ultimate workout not just for its name, but the results also. This workout is capable of triggering the upper body muscles (chest, shoulders and arms) and at the same time to work on the core muscles – our favorite six-packs. Another beauty of this exercise is that it is challenging for the chest muscles. It puts more pressure on them, creating additional strength and agility. Here is how to perform them.
Position the body in the classic push up position: arms on the floor parallel to the chest, feet on the floor with the toes facing down and a straight horizontal body. Now, the movement is simple; while lowering the body towards the ground for a push up, lift one leg of the ground and move it towards the elbows. For example, lift the left leg first and move it towards the left elbow. When pushing off the floor, return the leg to its initial position and start the other repletion with the right leg. Do as much as repetitions as you can and then rest.
Like I mentioned before, this is a challenging workout and it really triggers the muscles for strength and sweat. It is great for the core muscles as they are trying to maintain the body straight in position and do the leg lifting at the same time.
