"Inverted" Push-Up: Off Box

"Inverted" Push-Up: Off Box-1
"Inverted" Push-Up: Off Box-2

  1. Secure box in position against wall or some other way so it doesn't slide or tip.

  2. Place feet on box shoulder width apart.  Pay attention to keep back straight (neutral spine) as much as possible.

  3. Place hands slightly wider than shoulder width apart and near the tops of shoulders.

  4. Lower body then push back up into extension while maintaining the straight back position.

  5. When finished, place one foot down to floor as other leg follows.

Exercise Figure Tips: Push ups are usually thought of as "arms and chest" exercises but they are underrated as "core" exercises.  Inverted Push Ups are extremely core challenging as you work to keep your back straight while also balancing your body.  They also provide more shoulder strength and mobility challenge.

  • If the Inverted 45 Off Box Push Up is too easy, try the Inverted 45 or Inverted 90 Off Wall Push Ups.  If all of these are too hard, try working your way up by starting with the Pike Push Up.

*Note: This exercise is intended for "normal healthy" individuals.  If you have an injury, or abnormal pain is present,
see your physician or a certified physical therapist before continuing your exercises.
