This is an awesome exercise with the MostFit™ Resistance Tube that can be scaled up or down for anyone who wants to work on their upper body pushing strength, while getting a little core work in at the same time. Efficient!
The prime movers in this exercise are your pectorals major and minor, triceps, and anterior deltoids. Because you are performing this exercise standing, your spinal stabilizers/core will also be working at the same time. The core challenge can be toned down by staggering your feet in a mini-lunge, or can be intensified by performing this exercise on one foot. You can even throw some balance discs under the feet (or foot) if you really want to get fancy.
