Sometimes I like to try exercises I see other people doing. It’s fun to mix things up and to add a little challenge to my routine. I saw a woman doing push ups/ shoulder presses in a unique way and I wondered if I could do the same. I don’t have a box like the one she’s using in the photos below, so I tried putting my feet on a low bench I have at my house and also on the end of my bed. The bed was the proper height and worked best for me.
I managed to bang out a few reps at a time but it was definitely wasn’t easy. I tried to make sure that at the top of the push up/shoulder press I was in the same great alignment you see in the first photo. I could really feel the stretch, even in my hamstrings.
Trying something new and different occasionally is a good way to add some fresh interest into old routines.
