31 Aug Different ways to do a Press Up
Simple but Effective
There’s no doubt a press up is a great bodyweight exercise (we would say the best upper body exercise) and is excellent to throw into a hiit workout. Once you’ve mastered the basic, it’s fun mixing it up and targeting a few different muscles, or increase the intensity of the burn. Make sure your technique and form stay good to prevent injury. As you fatigue you may want to return to normal Press Ups, or even on your knees. The important thing is to keep your form.
Who needs a gym? You can work out at home or outside and achieve your fitness goals- to get stronger, build muscle, improve your toning or lose weight. These Press Ups can be added to a hiit work-out. It doesn’t take long and you can get awesome results. At our regular classes we have had brides need to take their wedding dress in by 3 inches. We also had a regular need a new kilt becuase he lost so much weight from his belly. The key is to work as hard as you can for a short period. And then rest completely. The ideal is 20 seconds work followed by 10 seconds recovery. Do this for 4 minutes, have a minute rest then repeat for a total of 20 – 30 minutes.
P.H.I.T is run by two former Commonwealth Games athletes, who competed for Scotland at Rugby 7s and Cycling. Every Monday and Wednesday they run fitness classes at Glasgow’s finest nightclub, The Sanctuary. DJ inspired Playlists, motivational lighting and expert tuition creates a fantastic atmosphere to work out.
They also run Boot Camps throughout the year.
