Guide for Pike Push Ups

  • The distance between your hands should be slightly wider than shoulder width
  • The closer your feet are to your shoulders the more you will activate the shoulders rather than your chest
  • Your legs should be straight  throughout the movement
  • Stand on your toes during the exercise to increase the mobility
  • Keep your elbows close to your body when bending your arms, do not flap out to the side with them
  • Your chest should point towards your feet at all times, not down to the floor as in a push-up
  • Perform the exercise slowly
  • You can perform the exercise on an elevation. Put your hands on an edge and go extra deep with your head over the edge
