HINDU PUSH-UPS
Hindu Pushups which are also referred to as “Jap” push-ups are often mistaken for Dive-bomber Pushups.

There are 3 yogic postures the Hindu Pushup passes through.
– Downward facing dog
– Low plank or crocodile
– Upward facing dog

Benefits of Hindu Pushups Include:
Increases strength of:
Palms, fingers, back, chest, and neck!
Increases flexibility and mobility of:
Calves and hamstrings, back, and hip flexors

Harness the energy of the Hindu Push-Up with these performance tips!
Perfect Form – just like anything else in fitness, quality over quantity. The goal with these are to create a steady rhythm and get into a trance-like state.
Activate the lats through the whole movement to keep upper arms in external rotation – Keep your elbows as if you are pointing them at your feet (very important). This is the most common mistake. You can watch several people doing this exercise and they will have their elbows pointing out. That is not the correct way to do it! Keep them by your ribs!

Breathing:
Synchronize your breathing with your movements. As you dive into upward dog, inhale; exhale through your mouth. Traditionally, Hindu push-ups are done breathing only through the nose. However, exhaling through the mouth is just fine.

Footing:
Traditionally, Hindu push-ups were done feet together, but shoulder width seems to be the most common nowadays. There are also many examples where the feet are extremely wide apart. I find it easier to do it this way until I gradually work my way up to higher difficulty.
Hindu PushUp
Hindu Push-ups have been a staple in combat athletic workouts for thousands of years. It promotes wellness of mind, body, and spirit. Give it a shot! Remember, keep those elbows in!
