Elastic band push-up
Planes of Motion
The elastic band promotes co-contraction of the muscles around the shoulder joint. It's a great exercise to enhance upper body strength and shoulder stability.
Place a looped elastic band around your wrists.
Assume a push-up position with your hands at shoulder-width.
Keep the torso erect and the core tight. The knees and hips are extended and the spine is neutrally aligned.
Stretch the elastic band more by placing the right hand out while maintaining perfect balance.
Lower your body, by flexing your arms until your chest touches the floor.
Return to the starting position by extending the arms and placing your hand back in.
Place the left hand out to complete another push-up.
Progress from a light resistance to a heavier resistance band.
Make sure you perform the push-ups in a full range of motion with an erect torso and a tight core.
