Cow Jumping over the Moon Exercise

October 11, 2011


This is a crazy exercise! Very few people even extreme exercise enthusiasts have ever heard of this exercise. It incorporates plyometric exercise, muscular strength, and muscular endurance. It may take you a few weeks before you can do this exercise. And also he even works your stabilizer muscles because your hands will be bouncing back and forth onto the stability ball.

How to do it:

Get in a normal push-up position except one of your hands is going to be on a stability ball. Lower yourself down and do a push-up but blast off the ground, similar to how you would do a bouncy spring push-up. While you were in the air you’re going to be transitioning to the other side of the ball and land with your other hand on top of the ball. Go ahead and do a push-up from here and blast out of it and land on the other side. repeat back and forth as many times as you can.

Muscle group worked:

This exercise strengthens the chest muscles tremendously and incorporates working your fast twitch muscle fibers as well as her slow twitch muscle fibers.

Target Repetitions for Muscle Growth: 6-8

Target Repetitions for Muscle Tone/Endurance: 8-12

Why it works:

This exercise works well because it is a plyometric movement and combines work on your stabilizer muscles.

Tips: Be careful when doing this exercise because it could put an extra amount of strain on your wrist. If you feel tweaking in your wrist stop doing it and try a different exercise.

Important!: Breathe in and out slowly throughout this exercise.

    “And also he even works” should be “And also it even works”

    “on the other side. repeat back and forth as many times as you can.” “repeat” should be capitalized or “side.” should become “side,”

    “your fast twitch muscle fibers as well as her slow twitch muscle fibers.” should be “as well as your slow”
