90° Push Ups for upper body strength


The 90 degree push up is the prelude towards being able to do a handstand push-up.

Not only is this exercise great for building shoulder stability and strength, but it closely mimics a complete “Vertical Pressing” pattern.

  • Place your feet on a chair, gym bench or elevated surface and extend your arms so your body is suspended in the air. Keep a slight bend in your knees and elbows while assuring your shoulders are directly over your wrists.
  • Maintain a neutral spine and bring your hips up as high as you can.
  • Bend your elbows as if you’re doing a push up- descend your shoulders to your hands.
  • Prevent your head from touching the floor and exhale as you push your body back up to the starting position.



Using a stability ball will really make you engage your core
