Tip: How to Do Proper One-Arm Push-Ups

The single-arm push-up is one the most complete exercises you can do... if you know how to do it right. Here's how it should look.

  1. Assume a one-arm plank position with your feet spread several inches wider than your shoulders.
  2. Your weight-bearing arm should be positioned so that your wrist is directly under the same-side shoulder.
  3. Place your non-weight-bearing arm on the opposite hip or behind your back.
  4. Don’t let your head or hips sag toward the floor.
