In the video, the 25-year-old could be seen holding the pushup position for over 30 seconds. Keeping her body in the zero momentum position initially, she then does slow motion pushups.
Pushups, which require one to hold themselves with their weight on the palms and toes, is considered as an effective bodyweight exercise for strengthening the core, and sculpting the abs. It is said that doing pushups helps build stamina.
Rashmika was seen doing the pushup as part of actor Nagararjun’s Wild Dog push up challenge.
Tips to hold a pushup for longer
*Do a pushup every single day.
*Set a timer but don’t look at it until the thighs start shaking.
*Find a distraction that can help you sustain the position for longer.
*Aim to start with a few seconds and then gradually build upon it.
Just like any other exercise, the posture is extremely important.
*Keep the weight distributed on the hands and feet, with the arms straight.
*While the body is rigid and straight, the hands should be placed approximately shoulder-width apart.
