Gear up for bikini season with this fun push-up that takes a twist on the classic; it’s an ideal variation for a strength-training newbie who wants to build their way to a full push-up. This modified one-leg push-up (aka the beach babe push-up) challenges your arms while strengthening the abs. To make things even more effective, actively squeeze the glute of the lifted leg to work that booty.
Begin in plank with your knees on the mat.Extend your right leg straight behind you so it’s parallel with the floor. Engage your abs, and keep your left heel in line with your hips by engaging your glutes.With your right leg extended, exhale to bend the elbows, lowering into a push-up. Inhale to straighten your arms, keeping your leg lifted. This completes one rep.Do 12 reps on each leg to complete a set.Image Source: POPSUGAR Studios
