WORK IT LOG (UPPER BODY ZONE)
Chest, Shoulders, Triceps, Core
Beginner 1 x 5, Advanced 3 x 10
1. Assume a pushup position, placing your hands slightly wider than your shoulders on the log. This reduces the amount of your body weight you have to lift, making the exercise easier.
2. Your body should form a straight line from your ankles to your head.
3. Brace your abdominals—as if you were about to be punched in the gut—and maintain that contraction for the duration of this exercise. This helps keep your body rigid, and doubles as core training.
There are a large variety of different ways to perform a push up, including twisting, Spiderman, decline and narrow.
