How to Do Push-Ups With Feet in Rings

  1. Assume the starting position, with hands slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.
  2. Place your feet in the rings. Try to form a straight line from head to feet, and brace your core slightly.
  3. Lower yourself as deep as you can, while inhaling.
  4. Reverse the motion, and push yourself up to straight arms again while exhaling.
  5. Repeat for reps


The pushup is a classic bodyweight exercise for the upper body, with the benefit that you don’t need any equipment to perform it. In push-ups, you lift about 70% of your own body weight, but you can increase or decrease that load by placing your hands or feet, respectively, on an elevation. This version of a push-up increases the load since your feet are elevated, and it also challenges your core and balance due to the instability.
