# Technique Tuesday 2- The Pushup

On #techniquetuesday part duex, we discuss pushups.
In the 1st video you see some of the common mistakes when performing a pushup. Elbows are not close to the body but flaring out, not going deep enough and not going down and coming up as a whole but instead bending and arching from the back which might be indicative of weakness or improper engagement of the core.

2nd video shows corrections for the above along with finding a proper neutral starting position for the pushup

If you are unable to perform a push-up with proper form, regress by doing it off a bench, table or mats as demonstrated in the 3rd video.

4th video is another regression of the pushup off the wall.

Do it right and do it often. Until next time

Pursue excellence-
