T-Stabilization Push-Up + "Abduction"

T-Stabilization Push-Up "Abduction"

  1. Perform the regular T-Stabilization Push Up.

  2. At point of extension and lockout, "carefully" abduct or lift the top leg; stabilize; then return to floor.

  3. Alternate back and forth on both sides on each repetition.

  4. Review Regular T-Stabilization Push Up

Exercise Figure Tips: This one is NOT for beginners!  With only two points of contact, the hip and shoulder have major loading factors as well as your whole core.  Without stabile core, hips, and shoulders you won't have control and thus could slip and fall.

  • This is a "whole body" challenge!  The push up loads chest and arms and the abduction increases challenge to legs, core, and shoulder and hip stabilizers.  Good stuff if you can handle it, but be careful to NOT exceed your capacity to control your position and movements.  Very few people I have seen can handle this advanced move.

*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.
