Hand Release Push Up

Coach's Tips


How to

Starting Position

1. Begin in a plank position with your hands slightly wider than shoulder width apart, your feet together and your abs engaged. 2. Keep your neck in line with your spine, your back flat and your gaze straight ahead. 3. Make sure your wrists are directly under your shoulders and your body forms a straight line from your head to your heels.

Proper Form

1. Bend your elbows to lower your chest to the floor. 2. As you lower, lift your hands and fingers off the floor. 3. Once your chest touches the ground, push your hands into the floor and lift your body back up to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale as you lower your body to the floor. 2. Exhale as you press your hands into the floor and lift your body back up.


1. Make sure your elbows stay close to your body as you lower and press up. 2. Do not allow your back to arch or your hips to sag. 3. Don't forget to engage your core and keep your neck in line with your spine.
