E.O.M- LaLanne pushup

April's Exercise of the month is a pushup that was given to us from the famous Jack LaLanne who is known as the " godfather of fitness." These pushups are considered difficult and are not for the beginner.

How to do it-

Begin by lying on your stomach on the floor with your legs straight and your arms extended directly out in front of you ( just like the superman flying position) and from there push up with your hands keeping your whole body straight and tight. When you are totally extended hold the position for a second then lower back down under control until your chin stops just short of the floor and then push back up.

If these are to difficult try bringing your hands in closer to your body and then building yourself up until you can do the above mentioned pushups.
