The Push-up requires a large abdominal muscle strength. The Pus-up is one of the most effective exercises to train chest, arms and the body stability. The greater the distance from the suspension point, the more intense the exercise for the abdominal muscles.

The following figures illustrate the exercise Push-up, Staggered Hands:

Suspension Training Exercise For The Chest

Starting Position

leg or thigh). Set your hands each 10-20 cm
off the shoulders. Exciting the abs and pull the
belly button inward.

Final Position

Lower the body and the chest to the ground. Lifting the head up slightly. Holding the abdominals under tension and lift your lower back slightly to avoid a hallow back.

Movement 1

The arms are felxed to 90° in the ellbow. The body will be kept extended under tension.

Movement 2

The arms are extended back and the chest will be  as far upwards as is gets.


Bend and stretch your arms only while your body remains in solid posture! The greater the distance from the suspension point, the greater the tension load on the abdominal muscles. Combine the pushup with the ReCrunch.
