How Low Should I Go In The Push-up?

exercise tutorials Apr 07, 2021

Push-ups are hard! I know.

So what do we do when something is hard?

We slowly build up to it. We don’t throw ourselves into the exercise, doing as many repetitions as our workout buddy, who’s been doing 50 Push-ups a day for the past 20 years.

We’re smart.

We start small.

We don’t go all the way to the floor.

We don’t touch the nose to the mat.

We don’t drop the head.

This video from the archives shows you a mistake you might not even realize you're making in your push-ups and, of course, how to fix it. 

Please don't listen to your trainer if he or she says to touch your nose to the ground.
