Resistance Band Push-ups / Pushups
- Bring yourself to the ground and place your hands below your shoulders and your feet directly behind you.
- Wrap a resistance band behind you so that the band is stretched across your upper back – not your neck. Brace your core and maintain a flat back.
- Slowly lower yourself and once your upper arms are parallel with the floor, pause, and return to the starting position. Feel the tension in your chest and triceps as the band provides resistance.
