Are Hindu pushups or dands beneficial? Will it lead to lower back injury?
Hindu pushups are an excellent exercise that improves both flexibility and strengthens the dorsal and ventral ‘chains'- the interconnected muscles, ligaments and joints that allow you to go about your daily business with some measure of grace and dignity. Provided you do not have any pre-existing spinal problems, you can attempt this exercise without fear. Just practice common sense, attempt lower number of reps and sets initially and don't increase training volume by 10% in any consecutive week.
