The Pike Up is a fantastic exercise for your mid-section, it will also ask questions of your upper body strength and flexibility. To perform this version of the Pike Up you will need to have a pair of fitness sliders, furniture sliders or even a skateboard to place under your feet.


Performance Tips


  • Start in the push up position with your feet on some sort of slider

  • Your body should be long and straight and your core muscles tensed

  • Don’t let your lower back cave in

  • Keeping your legs straight pike your body up so your feet come towards your hands

  • Go as far as your strength and flexibility will allow

  • Slowly and under control lengthen your body back to the starting position

  • Maintain tension in the whole body, particularly your glutes and abs

  • Don't let your lower back and hips collapse downwards
