Once you’re strong enough to rep out normal (and perfect) push-ups from the floor, you can add a progression and create challenge. Trish has been able to perform ring push-ups with a 35lb vest on for multiple reps and sets for some time. Now, there are many ways to progress her from here but for those advanced lifters, enter the band assisted one arm push-up. The problems with normal one arm push-ups is that most aren’t strong enough to perform them correctly, and number two is resisting body rotation. By using the band, Trish keeps her body in a plank, avoids rotation, and as you can see, they don’t deviate from her normal 2 arm push-up by her keeping her “arrow” arm stance and not a “T”. Keep your arm/hand holding the band tucked tight towards your body, grip the floor hard with your working hand, and crank up your body tension.
