How to Perform the Spiderman Push-up

Spiderman push-up

Here is another great push-up that will end up in my push-up book to be published soon. I tried it out with the Beach Boot Camp and they loved it. It's a great way to work the body even more and get the heart rate up.

Here's a YouTube clip I found on the web about the Spiderman push-up.

Start in the standard push-up position. Use a three count to get all the movements.
Count 1: Bring your body to the down position.
Count 2: Bend your right leg to the side of your body until your knee reach your right elbow. The right leg remains elevated for this move until it’s back to the starting position with foot on the ground.
Count 3: Bring your body back to the up position.
With the next alternating rep you will use your left leg. Continue your repetitions by alternation between using your right and your left leg for count two. Use the three count to help you stay with the rhythm of the exercise.
