The Hindu Pushup... and why this exercise should be a part of your day
My first experience of this exercise began a couple of years ago. Already convinced by the hindu squat's efficacy (visitors to this website will know I am a huge fan of this mighty marvel), I decided to give this powerful pushup a try.
Like the hindu squat, the hindu pushup appears deceptively simple. However, this impression is soon reversed on completion of your first set - indeed, for a complete upper body workout, this exercise is hard to beat.
Pushup to Power
So what makes this remarkable pushup so effective? Simply, this exercise builds strength as it builds endurance.
This fantastic feat is achieved by utilizing the whole body from the ends of your toes to the tips of your fingers. Forget the traditional bench press which only targets your chest, shoulders and arms - THIS pushup also targets your calves, thighs, hamstrings, buttocks, stomach and back, in addition to giving your shoulders, arms and chest a high-energy workout...

How to Do Hindu Pushups
1. Butt out.
Get onto all fours and push your butt out into the air. Your back will be bent as if you are making a triangle, and your head should be aligned with your back and facing towards your feet. This is your starting position.
2. Deep breaths.
Inhale deeply and then sweep down in a circular arc motion. As you sweep, bend back and look upwards at the ceiling as you exhale.
3. Terrific triangles.
From this position, push backwards and up into your starting triangle position (your butt in the air, hands and feet on the ground). This is one repetition.
4. Relaxed rhythm.
Your breathing, as with the hindu squat, is an important and beneficial part of the exercise. The hindu pushup should never feel hurried but should follow a calm, relaxed rhythm. Form is vital and should NEVER be sacrificed for the sake of extra reps (it is better to perform 10 perfect hindu pushup repetitions than a ragged and uncontrolled 50).
5. Beginner reps.
Slowly add repetitions to your pushups as your strength and endurance builds. Aim for 20 or so reps in the beginning, and more again as you improve.
6. Total training.
Looking for a hindu push ups aerobics boost? Hindu squats and pushups can be alternated, providing total body training. How?
