In this video, we’re going to be showing you how to do push ups the right way, so we’ve got Jay is going to get into the push ups position, we’re going to show you normal push ups and then on your knees, push ups as well if you need to regress, so starting with normal push ups, your quads, you want your quads to be flexed, you want the posterior pelvic tilt up and you want your abs to be on. So now Jane’s going to demonstrate push ups lowering her body all the way to the floor in terms of hand position exactly where jade is is perfect. Which buyer chromeo. Her hands are out straight in front. Just go wider than that. Unusual Jake, because a lot of people will do this is they go really wide. Even wanted up more than that. People go super wide and they do this kind of thing, which is just placing all the load on the anterior doubt rather than actually using their whole body.

Because a push ups release, a whole body exercise is not just for your chest. Everything should be braced. Everything should be nice and tight and as jade’s doing it there is perfect and we’re always opting for range of motion over just a, you know, load, so meaning that we want a full range of motion, so if you’re unable to achieve what jd is doing now, simply drop to your knees like that. Still keep everything nice and tucked in Nice and straight so her pelvis is tucked under, her glutes are switched on, her abs are on, and she’s going to lower her body all the way to the floor and backup and if that’s where you need to start, that’s absolutely perfectly as well, but you need to ensure that you’ve got full range of motion because it’s about the articulation of the movement. Then as you get stronger, you’re going to be able to go to your feet, but yet really, really ensure and the big mistake that a lot of people make is just dip through here is they do this kind of thing with their push ups.

Again, you want to avoid that. Even if it does mean that you’re here and the as low as you can probably go is maybe even to their right and your backup, you want to make sure that you’ve got that tension and build it up, but gold standard is reduced the load and all the way to the floor. I’d rather someone do two, three, or even five reps correctly. Then do 10 reps that are half assed, so they’re the key points with your push ups. Make sure the quads are locked out, the pelvis is tucked under, the ABS are on your hands or a buyer chromeo position and you’re lowering your body. Everything as one, and again, if it is too heavy a drop to the knees or it’s through high, drop to the knees and don’t worry about reps. muscles can’t count. Get the range of motion a do it for time. So you know a good rep. if jade does this, a good rep would glass say four, so three, two, one, and back up at least four seconds. It should last.
