Inverted Push Ups Regulate Blood Sugar

Memorial Day weekend ended up being actively productive, happy to report we were able to do inverted push ups along with 2 other exercises. 1 workout at the gym and 2 at the boardwalk. The boardwalk workouts consisted of 2 miles of power walking, park bench step ups and Inverted Push ups.

The picture & video included in this post show the inverted push-up. This is a great overall upper body strengthener and is easy to do. Remember when performing this exercise to keep looking at your feet, drop top of head towards the floor (not your chest).
