Lateral push up


This push up is combined with moving the upper body from side to side.

Having pushed up, change the position of your hands in two steps:

  1. Keeping your arms stretched, bring your hands together.
  2. Move one hand to one side, creating a sideways movement.

From this new position, do a push up. Afterwards move to the other side.

Count one repetition per push up.


– Face forwards.
– Keep your body in a straight line.
