E.O.M-Slide pushup

The exercise of the month for February is the slide pushup. A great exercise for the pecs that not many people know about. This exercise can be performed on a wood gym floor with a small towel under each hand. With the towels under your hands, assume a regular pushup position. Your hands should be slightly wider than shoulder- width. Lower yourself until your chest touches the floor, then pushup while simultaneously pulling the hands together. At the top position the thumbs should almost be touching. Next "walk" your hands out to the original starting position and continue your reps.

**** If you are advanced than try pushing your hands out to the starting position at the end instead of walking them out.
