Dive Bomber Push-Ups

Photo Sharing - Upload Video - Video Sharing

ive Bombers are great for developing upper-body strength and flexibilty. They can be difficult at first but certainly doable with practice. Be sure to master the form before adding reps.

Watch the video a few times before trying them. Begin with your feet and hands a little wider than shoulder width apart. Your hips are in the air and your shoulders back behind your hands.

In a smooth, controlled motion, lower yourself to the ground and project yourself forward and up, to the position you would be in at the top of a forward, extended push-up, looking forward and up.

Now smoothly reverse the motion to return to the starting position. Don't hold your breath. Breathe smoothly.


Note: Dive Bombers are similar but not the same as Hindu push-ups.
