EDITOR'S NOTE: Every Sunday we will be featuring a new bodyweight exercise video from physical therapist Ben Musholt, author of the Mad Skills Exercise Encyclopedia. Ben has a diverse movement background, spanning board sports, martial arts, parkour, and gymnastics. Get watching and get moving!


In this video, Ben describes and demonstrates a simple progression for learning a one-armed push up. No special equipment is required, but the use of a medicine ball will add another variation to the drill. You will need to have strong chest-to-floor push ups before attempting this. Let us know how you get on!
