How to do a push up

Push ups are great full body move. They require not only upper body strength from chest and shoulders but also the core, glutes and legs for stabilization and good form throughout the move. So many people end up doing push ups wrong thus putting them at risk for injury. 
Here are two modifications that will help you gain the strength needed for regular push ups.

Move 1: one leg push up

Start with knees on the floor but as you lower yourself straighten one leg.  This move helps strengthen your core, helps prevent low back sag and replicates the form you’ll want to have during a regular push up.

Move 2: power up push up

This move is a step closer to a regular push up.  It allows you to practice lowering yourself with no assistance but placing knees on for at bottom of move to press up, power up, through chest. Again this move helps with proper form and technique of av regular push up.

Try incorporating these moves 3-4 times a week and I promise you’ll gain the strength needed to do a regular push up with good form and technique!

Try something new

We all get into a routine or pick exercises we like but the way to results is to push yourself to a new limit! 👊
Many gyms offer all sorts of classes, no harm in trying one out. You may find a new passion! If you don’t like it, try a different one. ✔✔ Whether it’s yoga,  pilates,  kick boxing or a spin class the variation will target your muscles in a different way. 💪💪💪
I did my first spin class today and it was tough🔥🔥🔥.  Am I gonna go back?  Definitely. I’ll try to improve and get better each time.  Don’t think you’ll be a pro right away, work into the class and I bet you’ll see the results in your body and the way you feel!
