I HATE Push-ups but I’m going to teach them anyway

 

The military ruined me on push-ups forever! I avoid ’em like the plague. But I see so many bad push-ups I thought a little instruction could help.

There are a few things you need to remember with push-ups.

1. A solid plank position – if you can’t hold it for 60 seconds you’re not ready for a push-up
2. Start simple – start with an easier version of the push-up until you build some strength, then scale up as you get stronger.
3. Protect your shoulders – make sure your elbows aren’t flared out or you’ll put unneeded stress on your shoulders.
4. Don’t force reps – Stop the push-up workout when your form starts to breakdown
