Exercise #2: Dive Bomber Push Ups

Here are 5 ways to maximize this workout:

  1. Perform the routine 5 days a week
  2. Perform the routine at different times each day to force your body to feel different each time you perform the routine.
  3. Don’t use modifications.
  4. Repeat the workout twice in a row.
  5. Perform the routine with your eyes closed. This method uses proprioception (or the awareness of the position of the body.) This helps you develop balance and in more muscles.
