Bathroom Sink Push-up
OK, alright, it’s a push-up. But don’t let the name fool you, it’s not what you think. We’re not going to make you “drop and give me twenty.” With our gentle push-up, you utilize your own body weight as resistance. Because you’re vertical- as opposed to horizontal- there’s much less resistance. Targeting the major muscles in the chest, they can be performed perfectly at the bathroom sink. If you lack chest and upper arm strength, you’ll benefit from this one- plus, you get to spit!
Stand tall in front of the sink. Gargle to your heart’s content but don’t spit just yet. After a good gargle, step back about three feet and lean forward with outstretched arms, placing your hands on the leading edge of the sink. Keep your back straight and lower your chest toward the sink, bending your elbows. Allow them to extend outward toward the sides. When your chest nearly reaches the sink… SPIT! (that’s the fun part). Now, just extend your arms back to your original position and repeat for several repetitions.
