Nordic Push Up


Kneel on a soft surface. Have a partner squat behind you – keeping your ankles to the ground. Keep your body straight in alignment from the shoulders to the knees throughout the exercise. Cross your arms across your chest or simply keep your hands ready to catch your body in a push-up position. Lean forward, while contracting the abdominals and controlling the downward movement toward the ground with your hamstrings and your gluteal muscles. When you can no longer hold the position, gently absorb your weight using your hands – falling into a push-up position. Complete three to five repetitions.
