Another beautiful Saturday. I just got back from Trader Joe’s and Mother’s Market where I stocked up on nutrient dense foods such as raw goat’s milk, orange juice, pastured eggs, raw cheese, ricotta cheese, watermelon, raspberries, blueberries, raw unheated honey, white fish, and figs.

Below is the new “Exercise Of The Week.” Click here to see past Exercise Of The Week videos. I challenge you to try each push-up progression at home!

In this video you will see a series of push-up progressions: traditional right angle push-up, right angle push using one leg, push-up feet on swiss ball, push-up hands on swiss ball, push-up hands on bongo balance board. If you are a beginner you can start in a modified push-up position where you start on your knees and hands on ground. You can also take it to a higher level with feet on swiss ball and hands on bongo board.

Some of the muscles used in a push-up are: pectoralis major, anterior deltoideus, and triceps. If you elevate your feet you focus on your upper pectorals and elevate your torso to focus on lower pectorals. You can also vary how wide your hands are. Start with your hands about shoulder width apart.
