Push ups Part 2

Push up Progressions

Not quite ready for push-ups from the floor?  No problem!!

Start with your hands elevated on a bench (pic) or even on a wall.  The higher you elevate your hands the easier it is to move because you are pushing less of your body weight 

A great opportunity to work on range  of motion, building strength and, keeping tension in your body 

On any variation:

✅  keep tension in your body by bracing your abs and glutes throughout the entire movement as if someone is going to punch you in the gut.  This will help keep your hips from dipping down

✅  keep you elbows at 45 deg – think arms in a “W”

✅  keep your body in a straight line throughout the entire motion
