Exersices:Judo Pushups


Begin in a pushup position but move your feet hip-width apart and forward, and raise your hips so your body almost forms an upside-down V. Lower the front of your body until your chin nears the floor. Then lower your hips as you raise your head and shoulders toward the ceiling. Now reverse the movement and return to the starting position.


Note on the Judo Pushups it is an ancient Indian exercise also mentioned in Yoga called : SURYA NAMASKAR.

NAMASKAR = Bowing down in greeting someone.

“Suryanamaskar” and its not straight down and straight up its actually a circular movement, you go down and (almost nose touching the ground) and with the same pace stretch up, this exercise tones up every muscle in your body.  Strive for a full extension at both ends of the movement.  Most of the strain you will feel on the negative portion of the move.  Throughout the move you will be placing your body under tension.  It should be noted your not racing against anyone who is working out with you.  Do not sacrifice form for speed.  Be honest with yourself and do the full movements

    Is this kind of like the dive bomber pushup. It kind of seems like it is. All I know is those are hard.
