The Hindu push up is an advanced type of push up. It is a lot like the Dive Bomber push up, but it is not the same thing. It is actually slightly easier on your muscles, but these are great for improving flexibility and breathing.

Step 3: Keep pushing forward and up until your body is in the upward dog position.

From there, push your body straight back to the starting position.

Repeat.

* Key difference from dive bomber push ups: During Hindu push ups, you push your body straight back to the starting position. You do not lower yourself back down and then push back up.

That makes these push ups slightly easier, but it also allows you to better work on your flexibility during the exercise.
