This pushup progression using the platform side of the BOSU Balance Trainer strengthens the chest, shoulders, triceps and core. Bring your hands onto the sides of the BOSU and then perform a pushup by lowering the chest in between your hands and pushing back up. Your head and neck are in line with the rest of your spine. To progress, come up onto your toes and then perform the same pushup, but now you've got a much longer lever and it's much more challenging. As a third and final progression, we're going to take away a contact point and cross one foot over the other ankle. Make it really challenging by taking that leg and holding it out to the side.
