The Front-Leaning Rest Position (also sometimes referred to as FLRP) is the popular nomenclature for the classic pushup position, used widely by military units. More specifically, it is in reference to the top of the pushup position, as this is the authorized "rest" position during military fitness tests [1] [2] [3].
