What looks like an easy yoga-like move, the hindu pushups present a challenging kettlebell training movement for the upper body. Nearly every pushing muscle gets hammered in this movement. The triceps, the pecs, and the shoulders all get hit in a variety of angles due to the nature of the movement.
Key point, make sure you don’t hyperextend the lumbar (low back) spine while doing this exercise, just like all other kettlebell training exercises. Instead, drive your hips through and squeeze your glutes as you extend up and through.
