Eccentric Push Up
- Place your hands below your shoulder line*, as wide as possible while still having perfectly vertical forearms when your chest touches the floor in the bottom position. *(See your notes) - If you experience shoulder discomfort, use a 45-60° angle between your arms and torso (the area between the red lines in the image at right).
- Keep your glutes flexed to keep your hips from sagging.
- Smoothly lower to the floor (both your chest and nose should touch it).
- Now press your knees into the floor, and push your butt toward your heels to easily set yourself at the top position again for another lowering rep.
