Hindu Push-up

The Hindu push-up is a great upper-body and core exercise. This exercise might seem a bit awkward at first (especially if you're not alone at the gym or at home) but it's definitely worth a try. Start in a push-up stance with your hands and feet close to each other so you form a "V". Go down in a loopy manner (your chest and abs should touch the floor) then go up. Round your back again and repeat. This push-up variant is fairly advanced and requires a bit of training. It will blast your core, shoulders, triceps and chest. Do 3 sets of 8-12 reps.

Pros:
  • Works many muscle groups in the upper-body and core.
Cons:
  • Since your body touches the floor you need a soft surface like a gym or camping mat.
