Pike Push Up - Muscle Under Tension

  1. Set up & Starting position (bent over)
    Start in upside down V position, feet hips apart (or wider if you face a lack of mobility at hips) and heel off the floor. Your legs and arms should stay as straight as possible with hands by your head sides and align underneath your shouders.

  2. Eccentric phase
    Keeping your torso and leg straight, lower your body towards the floor by bending arms until your head nearly touches the floor.

  3. Isometric hold (optional) - Pause for a seconds using an isometric contraction of your triceps and shoulders.

  4. Concentric phase
    Push yourself back up to the starting position. Repeat.
