Rolling Pushup is such a fun exercise because you are are incorporating more action into the normal pushup.

How to do a Rolling Pushup:

Get in a normal pushup position. Do a pushup all the way down and all the way back up then immediately fall to the ground and do a 360 degree roll. Push back up and do a normal pushup. Fall back down to the ground and do a 360 degree roll back to the starting direction and do a normal pushup. Keep going back and forth.

Why a Rolling Pushup works:

The reason the Rolling Pushup works so well is because it is fun! You will not get board with this exercise. There is a cool exercise called log roll where you have two or more people rolling and doing pushups over each other. I’ll have to post that eventually.


You can get dizzy with this exercise so be careful that you are not next to any sharp objects.

Knee health score 3


Breath in and out slowly throughout this exercise.

    “You will not get board with this exercise.” You mean bored (as in not fun) not board (as in surfboard)
