What is a Push-Up?

A push-up is a compound bodyweight exercise that primarily targets the muscles of the chest, shoulders, and triceps, while also engaging the core and stabilizing muscles throughout the body. It involves lowering and raising the body by pushing through the arms, making it an excellent choice for building upper body strength and endurance.

How to Do a Push-Up:

Starting Position: Begin in a plank position with hands placed shoulder-width apart on the ground, wrists aligned under shoulders, and body forming a straight line from head to heels. Engage your core to maintain stability.

Lowering Phase: Lower your body towards the ground by bending your elbows, keeping them close to your sides at a 45-degree angle. Aim to lower until your chest gently touches the ground, maintaining a controlled descent.

Pushing Phase: Push through your palms to straighten your arms and return to the starting position. Fully extend your elbows at the top of the movement, while keeping your body in a straight line from head to heels.

Repeat: Perform the desired number of repetitions with proper form, focusing on maintaining alignment and control throughout the movement.

Coaching Cues:

Ensure hands are positioned directly under shoulders and feet are hip-width apart for stability.

Engage core muscles to prevent sagging hips and maintain a straight line from head to heels.

Lower with control, keeping elbows at a 45-degree angle to protect shoulders.

Not everyone will have the same range of motion. You go to where your body allows.

Push through palms to fully extend arms at the top, engaging chest and triceps.

Breathe rhythmically throughout the exercise, inhaling during the descent and exhaling during the ascent.

Common Mistakes to Avoid:

Sagging Hips: Keep hips lifted to maintain proper alignment and prevent strain on the lower back.

Flaring Elbows: Keep elbows close to your body to protect shoulders and maximize chest engagement.

Head Position: Keep head aligned with spine to avoid neck strain; gaze slightly forward.
