Hello and welcome everyone to another edition of Fey Fitness! In this video we are exploring an intermediate level chest exercise called a Staggered Stance Pushup. I like to save this exercise for clients to transition them out of regular pushups and into something a little more advanced as the movement allows for lots of variation depending on skill level and strength.
Why Do a Staggered Stance Pushup?
- This exercise emphasizes strength in the body and helps create toned muscles.
- Staggered Pushups are more advanced forms of a pushup because they require more core, shoulder and triceps stability in order to complete the movement.
- Working on these muscle groups helps you build stability, strength and power in your upper body. This will allow you to have more functional mobility in your everyday life.
How to Perform a Staggered Stance Pushup:
- Come down into a normal pushup position with a straight back and toes firmly planted on the ground with your heels pointing towards the sky.
- Depending on skill and strength level, bring one hand up towards your head and the other hand down towards your waist- but continue to keep both hands shoulder-width apart.
- Lower yourself down as though you were performing a normal pushup, and press firmly through your hands to press yourself back into the starting position.
- Repeat this motion 10-15 reps on each side for 4 sets total.
