How To Do Finger Tip Push Ups



Push ups rank among the best strength training exercises around. You'd be surprised how powerful you can become by simply doing body weight exercises. Push ups are also versatile, once you've mastered one style, there are plenty more to do.

Today I'm going to show you how to do finger tip push ups. This exercise is physically demanding, and is a great way to develop strength. Some of the benefits of finger tip push ups include:
  • strong chest
  • strong biceps
  • strong triceps
  • strong core
  • strong phalangeal joints
People with arthritis should consult a physician before doing this exercise.

How To Do Finger Tip Push Ups

The only equipment that you'll need for this exercise is a flat, horizontal surface. Spread your fingers and place them on the floor. Make sure that your hands are shoulder width apart. Extend your legs behind you. You'll be supporting your weight on the balls of your feet and your finger tips. Make sure that your feet are close together.

Keep your back straight and your abs tight. Now, lower your chest until it is within one inch of the floor. Use your chest and triceps to push your body upward until your arms lockout. That's one push up.

Depending on your strength level, you should be able to perform at least ten reps without stopping. As you become stronger and more adept, you'll be able to increase the number of reps and sets you perform.
