The Pit Shark Push-Up has an immediate positive impact on our programming at SMARTER Team Training. The bench press is no longer the king of the weight room. Pit Shark developed the Push-Up to allow for various hand positions to accommodate potential shoulder issues while targeting specific areas of the upper body. The SpeedHook and harness make using this piece time efficient.

Adding the Band Tensioner to the Pit Shark Push-Up upgrades the experience on this piece instantly. The strength curve can be adjusted using bands to allow for assisted or resisted reps and drop sets without losing tension in the muscle. The handles can also be adjusted to accommodate the width of the trainee.

Coach Taylor’s go to exercise…

“On the Pit Shark Push-Up the ‘747’ protocol always gets solid feedback. Complete seven slow and controlled reps, then rest for 45 seconds and add the orange band. At the end of the rest, complete four proper reps again, and rest 45 seconds removing the band for the last set of seven high quality reps. When time is limited, adding 6-10 quality reps on the Rogers Athletic 3-Way Row where rest would normally be is an excellent way to attack the upper body training requirements in our program.”– Rob Taylor, Jr., Founder and Owner of SMARTER Team Training

Alex keeps it creative with…

“The Pit Shark Push-Up is superior to a bench press, in my opinion, as it provides the possibility of more range of motion, allows the scapulas to move free (as opposed to lying on a bench) and we can train to absolute momentary muscular failure without danger of dropping a barbell on somebody. My favorite protocol on the Pit Shark Push-Up is to compound set it with the Rogers Athletic Shoulder Incline. 8 weighted push-ups immediately followed by 8 vertical shoulder presses and rest for 45 seconds. Repeat 4 times to have the anterior deltoids, pecs, and triceps on fire.” – Alex Walsh, Performance Coach

Want to attach the upper body…

“The Pit Shark Push-Up really takes upper body training to another level. I like to combo this exercise with bent over rows on the Pit Shark Row and Pull. Superset 5 sets of 5 reps between the two and not only will you gain strength in the chest and back but your work rate will be extremely high.” – Ade Parkes, Performance Coach
