1920s Exercise 5 - Raise Up from the Floor

And now for our last 1920s exercise ladies. Appears to be a push-up. The article says only do 3 to 5 of them, which isn't too difficult for me to handle. I should be buff by this weekend :)

Spread a sheet on the carpet and kneel on it. Place hands on the floor the width of the shoulders apart. Stretch the legs out behind until the body is supported by hands and feet only.

  1. Lower the body until chest touches floor, as in top figure
  2. Then slowly raise to the arms' length as in bottom figure

Breathing - Inhale before pressing up; exhale while lowering. Repeat three to five times.
