Pike push up

November 14, 2015

 

 

If you're wanting to progress to a handstand push up, or even just improve your overhead pressing ability this pike push up has some great benefits. A good amount of movement prep and warm up is important to prepare you to perform. Upper body strength plus good flexibility are required to get into the correct position. You should have a excellent regular push up technique before attempting these.


Important cues:


⦁    Your body should resemble an A-frame viewed from the side. Up on the toes, tail bone to the ceiling, and head down between the arms.
⦁    When you press to the floor touch the crown of your head to the floor, and look back through your legs.
⦁    If your position is limited by tight hamstrings, try bending your knees slightly. You should still keep the rest of your position as cued above.
Check with your coach that these are right for you!
