Workout of the Week: Old Exercise, New Tricks

Share this article

How do you make an old exercise relevant again?

Push-ups, sit-ups—yeah you know how to do them, but they can get old in a hurry.

How about spicing your exercise up a bit?

Today you’ll be doing divebomber push-ups and straight leg sit-ups! Straight leg sit-ups are pretty straightforward, but what in the world are divebomber push-ups?

You start in the downward dog position with your torso straight up in the air. Slide your torso down until you are in the cobra position (torso hugging the floor, upper body straight up).

Ready to build some upper body strength. Your time starts now!
