Hi, my name is Dan Schmidt from the Chinese
Martial Arts Center. Today, we’re going to be showing you how to perform the Tiger Push
Up. Okay, so the Tiger Push Up, you want to spread your legs apart, okay, to where you’re
comfortable, go down on your fingers. Okay. And your body is at a slant. Okay. From your
tail bone down, you’re body a 45 degree angle, but keep your head up. Okay. And you start
by pushing forward, okay, deeply ver close to the floor and then coming back up and then
backwards. Okay, so again, you go straight forward, back and up. Okay. The idea on this,
is you want to work the chest muscles as well as the lower hips, and of course the arms.
Okay. This is created by the downward action that you’re doing. So once again from this
side, okay as you could see, you go down, going down at an angle, and then you come
back up and then straight back. Okay now a few errors are, some people they do it with
their palms completely flat with their fingers pointing forward. That’s very easy way to
lose balance and you don’t work the same muscles. Okay, so you want to go back on the fingers
and you don’t want your chest to touch the floor. So once again, you go down about an
inch off the floor and then one more. That’s the proper way to perform the Tiger Push Up.
