How to Do Push-Ups With Feet in Rings
- Assume the starting position, with hands slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.
- Place your feet in the rings. Try to form a straight line from head to feet, and brace your core slightly.
- Lower yourself as deep as you can, while inhaling.
- Reverse the motion, and push yourself up to straight arms again while exhaling.
- 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.
