Step by Step

  1. This exercise works your Pecs, Anterior Deltoid, Triceps, Core, Hip flexors and Glutes
  2. Like any exercise this should be pain free or shouldn’t increase existing pain levels, during, after and the next day.
  3. It is normal to feel some delayed onset muscle soreness between 48-72 hours but this should be manageable
  4. In kneeling, place your hands on the floor, slightly outside shoulder width apart.
  5. Spread your fingers slightly out and have them pointed up in the direction of your head.
  6. Engage your abdominals to keep your back straight throughout.
  7. To make the exercise easier bring your knees closer to your hands and to make it harder take your knees further away from your hands.
  8. Next, bend your elbows and lower your chest down towards the floor.
  9. The angle of your upper arms away from your body should be about 45 degrees.
  10. Once your elbows bend slightly beyond 90 degrees and lift one leg off the floor and straighten it out behind you.
  11. Next reverse direction by pushing off the floor to straighten your elbows and at the same time bring that same one knee up towards your chest
  12. Repeat the press up again but this time move the opposite leg instead.
  13. For strengthening you should perform 6-10 reps to fatigue
  14. You should perform 3-5 sets with 3 minutes rests
  15. This session can be done 2-3 times per week
  16. For endurance you should perform 15-25 reps to fatigue

Online Physiotherapy

Put simply this is Physio done via either telephone or video over the internet. Skype and facetime are examples of this.

Contrary to popular belief online physiotherapy can be very effective and it can help the same injuries that face to face physio can help. I have helped many people with injuries such as disc prolapses, tennis elbow, neck pain and much more).
