  • For the Hand Release Push Up, the movement starts with the athlete at the top of a plank position, arms straight and completely locked out. At the bottom of each rep, the athlete’s chest must clearly touch the ground; hands come off the mats so that one’s body is resting on the ground. At the top of the rep when the athlete has pressed out, the arms are clearly locked and one’s body is back into the original plank. In order to be considered a rep, two things must occur.
  • One, the athlete’s feet must remain on the ground throughout the entire movement. In no way, can one use their feet to “kick off” the mats in order to assist them with the push up.
  • Secondly, athletes are not allowed to “worm out” or lose Mid-Line Stabilization as they press out.
