This is just a follow-up in my series of craptacular clips of bodyweight exercises. You can check my previous blog post to read more about them.
I’m my quest to incorporate more bodyweight (BW) exercises into my training, I ran into this exercise called the cross-diagonal toe-touch push up – actually I learned this from Judo champ Rhadi Ferguson‘s new BW instructional DVD.
The exercise is quite simple and it’s intended to hit the abdominals first and the pecs second. It is more efficient if done immediately after a set of v-ups or crunches.
So far, I’ve found it useful to film myself while doing these exercises in order to catch any mistakes in form. For instance, when doing this exercise (or one-hand push ups), I tended to lift my hips higher than my shoulders (thus making the execution easier.) The making of these clips have proven invaluable in correcting mistakes.
