Three-Phase Push-Up

Step 1

Place both hands on the mat slightly further than shoulder-width apart and feet together on the mat behind you while resting on the balls of your feet. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhaling in three distinct phases, set your T-zone and bend your elbows to lower your torso towards the mat until your arms form two 90-degree angles. Like your breath, you should be lowering your torso in three-distinct phases, ensuring that your spine is in a neutral position.

Step 3

Exhale. In one continuous breath, push through your chest and extend your elbows to lift your body back into the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
