Missing Arm Pushup

October 11, 2011

Missing Arm Pushup is also known as One handed pushup. I don’t recommend using this exercise in your regular arsenal because it is awkward and places a lot of strain on your arm that is on the ground. Though it is a great way to test overall strength and body unity.

How to do a Missing Arm Pushup:

Position your feet so they are wider than shoulder width apart. Put both hands on the ground as if you were getting into a pushup position. Lift one arm and place behind your back. Lower your body down as far as you can. Pushup back up. Repeat on the other side.

Muscle group worked:

Chest, shoulder and arm of the lower arm.

Target Repetitions for Muscle Growth:

6-8

Target Repetitions for Muscle Tone/Endurance:

8-12

Why a Missing Arm Pushup works:

Missing Arm Pushup works well because it tests your strength. It requires your entire upper body weight to be held up by one arm.

Tips:

If you want to make the move more difficult, put your feet in closer together.

Important!:

Breath in as your lower yourself down to the ground. Breath out as you push back up.
