How to Do

How to Do Archer Push Up

The archer push up should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the archer push up.

Beginning

1. Start on all fours, with your knees and toes flexed and in contact with the ground.

2. Hips should be higher than knees.

3. Your hands should be wider than your shoulders.

4. Outwardly rotate your hands so that your fingers point away from your body and a straight line runs from your shoulders to your hands.
