Yoga Push-Ups: Dolphin Pose Variation for Strong Arms, Back, & Core

| by

Whether you’re hoping to prepare for headstand (sirsasana), forearm balance (pincha mayurasana), or a season of going sleeveless, dolphin push-ups will help get you there.

To do this movement, you must be able to perform dolphin pose comfortably, with your head easily off the floor, shoulders rotating away from your ears, and a straight spine (a la downward facing dog). Benefits include strong, open shoulders and back, toned arms, fierce abs, and a laser-focused mind. (It takes a few tries to get the hang of these). Begin slowly, with 2 repetitions, working your way up to a set of 10-12.
