Pressups

🔥 CORE / CHEST / TRICEPS 🔥 One of the simplest, most effective exercises out there is the press-up. Done correctly, they can really strengthen your chest, core, and back. Once you master the proper form, you can elevate the effectiveness of the press-up by adding in a Core Master! Why should I try this? First and foremost, a Core Master provides an unstable surface to work out on. This means increased core and stabiliser muscle engagement. It takes normal exercises and transforms them into more of a full body workout. Doing a press-up on the Core Master adds a few things. The instability of the Core Master forces your core to kick into high gear so you don’t slide forwards or backwards, or fall to the side. Your obliques, upper abs, lower abs will be burning. It also adds more of an incline to the motion, putting extra tension on your core, back, and triceps. As your lower abs and obliques work harder to keep your body stable it is a great way to work on the ‘V’ shape around your waist. When you try out the Core Master press-up, or any Core Master exercise for that matter, the goal is to focus on the quality of the exercise, not the quantity. Perform slow, controlled reps with a straight spine. When you lower your body to the bottom of the press-up, you will feel the most unstable. Embrace that instability... it’s an indicator that your core is working overtime 💪🏼 Kneeling Core Master Press-ups If you need to work up to a standard push-up, doing them from your knees is a great way to build the strength you need for the next level. It is more suitable for beginners as being on your knees decreases the gravity and lessens the demand placed on your core. However you will need a lot of upper body strength to Press-up whilst balancing.
