How To Do One Arm Push Ups

By Mike Thiga

There could be a number of reasons why you might be interested in 
one arm push ups. The reasons could range from travelling or one 
holiday when you are away from a gym or you are simply training at
home and do not have any equipment.

It should be mentioned here that there are many dedicated bodyweight
trainers all over the world that have been training very effectively 
for years without using any resistance except their own bodyweight. 
They continue to show muscle gains as well as strength gains.

Doing one arm push ups is something that one can do incorrectly or 
correctly just like doing any push up. There are some basic principles
that one should keep in mind when starting with one arm push ups.  
This article will discuss the basic steps that should be taken when 

The first step is to assume the standard push up position which as 
you know is prone, feet together, hands on the floor just below the 
level of your shoulders and about shoulders' width apart. There will 
be a slightly different angle on the muscles if you look down or 
forward but that will be discussed later.

Just to note that when doing one arm push ups you should spread your
feet apart. Your feet should be a little wider than your shoulders 
in order to get the maximum leverage for balance and insure that you
do not lose balance in the middle of the concentric movement.

Before you start with your chest on the ground put your one hand 
behind your back. Then start your push up by pressing hard down with 
your one hand which is flat on the ground. Make sure that you are 
keeping your chest level and not turning it upward as you press 

It is important to not lock out at the top of the press so that you 
are able to keep your balance. But when you lower your body you 
should turn your torso so that you do not lose your balance 
completely. By turning your torso away you will be keeping the 
stress equally so not to worry.

Continue lowering yourself until your chin is about a fist's width 
above the floor. Since you angled your torso, your chin should be 
about where the hand you now have behind your back was when you 
started the exercise. This is one repetition.

Depending on your specific objective you should change to the other
arm and repeat the process. We all know that getting results is all 
about intensity so one should repeat to near exhaustion for an 
intense arm and chest workout.
