Hi, I'm Chris with Live Fit personal training out of Kansas City, and today we're going to show you the difference between an upper body push and an upper body pull exercise. We're going to use this bar for both exercises. The first one is your upper body push exercise. You're going to put the bar about to thigh level, maybe waist level depending on your fitness level. You're going to put your hands out wide and step back. You're going to be on your toes. You're going to come down and do a pushup to the bar and press straight back up. It's not necessarily important to go all the way to the bar every time but you want to get to 90 degrees at the elbows. You're going to do about 10 to 15 reps. If this is too difficult, you always have the choice of raising the bar up a little bit and we'll make it a little easier. If you want to make it harder, take the bar lower towards the ground and go ahead and rest. So that's your upper body pushup exercise. Now for your upper body pull exercise. You want to raise the bar a little bit higher and you're going to take your hands in the same position and walk under the bar and you keep your feet flat, weight on your heels, core tight and you're going to pull straight up and straight back down, nice and strong but nice and slow. Again about 10 to 15 reps is ideal and you want to make sure that if you want it more difficult, you lower the bar, if you want it a little easier, you raise the bar and that's the difference between an upper body push and an upper body pull exercise.
