How to Do Hindu Push Ups [Video]

India is a country that has given birth to some amazing exercises, which are simply great for our bodies. Unfortunately, we sometimes forget about these exercises, when we could have got much better results by including some of the desi stuff. One such exercise happens to be the Hindu push ups or what we in India refer to as dund, which you can see in the how-to video in this post. It is one of the best bodyweight movements that is there to work the entire upper body and the core in one simple movement. Infact, you can get a good minimalist workout by just doing the Hindu push ups and bodyweight squats.

 


With the Hindu push ups you will improve your strength, flexibility, and muscular endurance in your upper body. And for those of you seeking a six pack, 100's of Hindu push ups will give you a better chance of getting that 'to die for' abdominal when compared to 100's of situps. Plus, you also improve on your conditioning levels by doing a set of high reps of this fabulous exercise. 

In this video my training partner Samrat Sen demonstrates how to do them in a nice and slow manner hitting the lats, triceps, shoulders, chest, abs maximally. Beginners may find that they are not able to go as low as shown in the video and may not be able to keep their arms close to their side as shown. For a beginner that is ok, and is usually the case. Not to worry, keep doing this exercise regularly and soon you shall be able to do it properly. The key is to be patient and persistent.
