Movement Challenge # 3: Rotational Push-Up (Difficult)

in actifit •  15 days ago

This is the final stage of the rotational push-up challenge.

The key to stage three is figuring out how to balance your weight on one arm. This can be done by placing your elbow inside of your hip on the soft, upper inside of the bone. When lifting your second leg off the ground, be sure to keep your forehand at a ninety degree angle to the floor. If you don’t, you risk straining your wrist. Some of you (myself included) may find that your wrists aren’t quite flexible to do this move comfortably. If that’s the case, please proceed slowly and cautiously. There’s no need to injure yourself while getting in shape and learning new movements.

My challenge for you this week is to do four stage 1 rotational push-ups, four stage 2 rotational push-ups, and four stage 3 rotational push-ups everyday. This will keep you within the philosophy of threes, which advises practicing movements at a beginner, intermediate, and advanced level.

Best of Luck!

Very very good 👍 . .i like it


Give it a try, and let me know how it goes.

My son is just getting into pushups. I will have to show him this!


Have him check it out. These are interesting push-ups. I found the motion really challenging at first, but once you get used to it and build up a little strength, your body acts like a cantilever and pulls you around. They’re fun. I still can’t quite do the level three push-up on my left side because my wrist isn’t up for it, but as it gets stronger, I get closer to being able to pull that move off.

If your son tries them, just tell him to go slowly. I’ve fallen over a couple times in the process of learning the three phases.
