I have been experimenting with Hindu Push Ups for my athletes over the last few months, and I have nothing but good to say about them.
The movement requires strength, flexibility, and utilizes many of the major muscles in the upper body. You will feel these in your chest, shoulders, and triceps for sure.
Plus, being a body weight - relative strength – movement, it can be used with athletes of all ages safely.
Here is a video of Jake performing Hindu Push ups on the back end of a super set. If I were to add any critique, it would be to keep the lower back from rounding every so slightly at the top position. Either way, Hindu push ups get the job done.

I also shot some video of some other variations of the hindu push ups, including a partner variation. Let me know if you want to see those as well. If you want the videos, they will be up on my StrengthVIP YouTube channel.
