The one-arm pushup is among the most impressive feats of fitness a guy can pull off (see also: one-arm pullup, muscleup).

Moreover, it's a powerful tool for increasing your chest and triceps strength and overall stability throughout your upper and lower arms—something that will benefit you in all kinds of exercises.

To help you finally nail the one-arm pushup, Life Time Fitness trainer Bradford Shreve stopped by the MH Rec Room to give a little demonstration.

Shreve shared with us a simple progression that almost anyone can use to build up to this exercise.

Give it a try today. You might be surprised by how close to pulling off this move you already are.

Either way, share your videos with us on social media using the hashtag #MHRecRoom.
