Archer Push-Ups Using Gym Rings to Develop Upper Body and Core Strength

These are called Archer push-ups whereby you lower your upper body beside one arm while straightening your other arm out to the side.

You can begin on your knees, and once you’ve built up strength and confidence with this exercise, you can try it in a full push-up position.

Archer push-ups can also be done with your hands on the floor and without the use of gym rings.

Before working on Archer push-ups, I would suggest spending time getting comfortable and confident with basic push-ups using gym rings - you can find a video demonstration here:
