Press Up

Lie face down with your palms flat on the mat near your shoulders. Keep your pelvic bones in contact with the mat. Use only your arms to push your chest up. Extend as far as possible while keeping your pelvis on the mat. Keep your gluteal muscles relaxed. Don’t hold at the top. Repeat up and down 10 times.

  • Don’t try to push past pain
  • We do not recommend holding this stretch more than a few seconds even if the primary goal is to increase flexibility.
