Inhale on die way down; exhale on the way up. Pointers

Always leave a repetition in reserve, and try not to do this exercise to failure. If you can do 3 reps, do 2 instead. If you can do 12, do only 10 or 11. You can always maximize your total reps by doing more sets. For example, do a set of 5 bananeira push-ups (even though you could probably manage 7), Come down and do a lew cocorinha squats or stretches while you rest your shoulders for a couple of minutes, then go up and do another set of 5 repetitions of the bananeira push-up. Repeat this whole sequence for 10 sets and you've achieved 50 repetitions of the bananeira push-up (and a few hundred cocorinha squats in the bargain), radier than half the amount yon might manage if you always do the reps to failure for each set.

Note: As soon as your head touches the ground, push up; if yoU hang around down there resting weight on your head, it is much more difficult to push up.

Safety note: Do not dive-bomb die ground with die top of your head or you may injure your neck. Lower yoursel f slowly and steadily, concentrating on your breathing. If you can't do a single bananeira push-up, simply do a bananeira handstand and slowly lower yourself until the crown of your head makes contact with the floor. When this happens drop your feet to die floor gentiy and stand up. The act of lowering your body weight in a controlled way will increase your strength until you are ready for the hill bananeira push-up.
