Push up with hip touch


Another twist on the regular push up … add a hip touch to challenge balance and really work those stabilising abdominal muscles, arms, shoulders and pelvic stability.

Set up with feet about hip distance apart (this will help with balance when transferring weight as you move hand to hip), hands under shoulders, head in line with spine. Lower the body slowly and push back up to plank position. Then slowly raise one hand to tap the corresponding hip and return hand to mat. Concentrate on keeping pelvis “quiet” as you move hand to hip. Repeat on the other side.
