1 Leg Raised

The 1 leg raised press up will help work both your upper body and core muscles, as your going to need good stability.

Best performed in the full press-up position, do the press-up whilst keeping one foot of the ground, aiming to keep the leg straight throughout the movement.
 

START
keep one foot off the floor throughout the movement
FINISH
lower your chest to the floor keeping your back and leg straight

You can either alternate, or work one leg at a time, then change, keeping your hands underneath your shoulders with fingers facing forward throughout.


Bend at your elbows, lowering your chest down, no lower than 2 inches from the floor, in a smooth controlled motion, the rhythm should be one push every 2 seconds.

Aim to make a right angle with your arms, keep a straight line through your spine, down to your foot. Avoid forcing your bottom into the air, and also arching of the back.

Stretch and Warm Up before you commence any exercise and aim to finish with some good stretching to let your body and mind recover.
