Band Assisted Push Ups

Loop a band over a bar or other fixed object (not too high) and check to see that it is securely fastened. Step inside the band and drop down into the push up position. The band should be positioned comfortably across your chest or slightly below. Perform the classic push-up movement. The band’s tension will be greatest when you are at the bottom of the push up movement allowing you to achieve a full range of motion. Over time work with lighter and lighter bands and soon you will be doing full range push-ups unassisted. The same technique can be used with most push up variations!
