PREPARATION DRILL, MODIFIED EXERCISE 10: MODIFIED PUSH-UP

The Soldier performs the modified push-up in the six-point stance. The Soldier assumes the starting position, using his hands to assist in lowering his body, and then steps back into the six-point stance. Range of movement may be limited throughout the exercise. Over time, the Soldier gradually increases the range of motion and works toward the standard execution of the push-up (Figures 6-81 and 6-82).
