Wall Push Up To Plyometric Push Up Exercise Video Progression
In the video below you will see osteopath Heath Williams of Principle Four Oseopathy demonstrating a push up exercise video series that will provide you with some insights into how to progress from a wall push up to a dynamic plyometric push up.
In this short 60 second push up exercise video series you will see the following progress:
- Wall scapular push
- Wall push up (upright)
- 45 degree wall push up
- Box push up
- Push up from ground with a short lever (from knees)
- Push up from the ground
- Dynamic plyometric push up
- Push up hand variations
The push up is probably one of the easiest bodyweight exercises that everyone can perform because it requires no equipment and can be scaled to suit the individual according to their fitness level. The push up helps to build upper body and trunk strength, with a focus on the chest, shoulders and back. Building upper body strength will help people of all ages, ranging from the young through to the older population who need strength to assist them with functional tasks such as getting in and out of the chairs etc.
