Our exercise of the month for March is once again a full body workout all in one exercise. It works your legs, arms and abs all at the same time. Performing a few sets with short rests, will get your heart rate racing and help improve your cardiovascular fitness, increase your metabolism, tone and build muscle and burn body fat. Yes, it is that good an exercise!

“The Arm Slide Push-Up”

Now, last month we also featured a push-up as our exercise of the month. And just like last month, this is a push-up with a difference because it really does work almost everything!

Okay, so how is “the arm slide push-up” performed? Just checkout the pictures below:

  • Start in a position kneeling on all fours (hands, knees and feet on the ground)
  • Now lift your knees off the ground and straighten your legs to assume the push-up position
  • Level 1 of this exercise would be just holding this position for 15 – 30 seconds

  • Level 2 involves taking your right arm and sliding it forward away from you as far as you can and then back to the starting position. You then repeat the same movement with the left side.
