Exercise of the Week: Runner’s Pushups

Exercise of the Week:  Runner’s Pushups

Coach Heather demonstrates Runner’s Pushups.

Start in the down position with elbows back, core engaged, head neutral, toes tucked and push straight up shifting your weight back.  Then in the up position shift your body weight forward then come straight down returning to the start position.  To modify, put a pillow or blanket under your knees, push yourself up with your core and glutes engaged,  knees relaxed, ankles relaxed.  Push yourself forward then come down.  These pushups strengthen your anterior deltoid, triceps and shoulders for strong running arms.
