Hindu pushups

Hindu pushups are great. They work whole upper body and also give you good cardio workout. Here's short description how to do them by Mike Mahler:

Hindu push ups
This is a kickass exercise and one of my favorites. In addition to being a great upper body exercise, it's great for increasing flexibility in the spine and is a fantastic pick-me-up whenever you feel lethargic. Get on all fours and press your butt in the air. Bend your back as if you were trying to make a triangle. Your head should be aligned with your back facing towards your feet. Take a deep breath and then sweep down in a circular arc motion and bend back looking up at the ceiling and breathing out. From there, push back toward your heels and start over.

I've never heard of this one, but I know that I had better start stretching for a while before I attempt it. I might get stuck in that position ;)

When I was really into martial arts, my teacher was insane and he used to make us do finger push ups to strengthen the hands - I'm not sure that I would be able to do that now though, haha! this is a great blog by the way - keep up this awesome work, thanks for the info!

It seems like the only person who is really pushing Hindu pushups is Matt Furey.
