Know All about Power Push Ups
Push ups are the most convenient way to build up your
chest, shoulders, arms and upper back. It can be performed
at any place, and you don't need to carry your gym with you
wherever you go.
Do you know that most of the men who train with weights
cannot do single handstand pushups? When I first found this
out I was stunned.
A few Things to keep in mind:
Ø Always keep your hands slightly wider than shoulder width
apart, with fingers together and pointing straight ahead.
Ø If you have ever had any shoulder pain, stick to the
90-degree limit. Deeper push ups can stretch the shoulder
capsule and put strain on the joint. This can cause pain.
Ø Start in the upper position with your arms straight.
Ø Inhale as you lower yourself towards the floor.
Ø Don't go lower than forming a 90-degree bend with your
Ø Exhale as you push yourself up from the floor.
Ø Don't lock your elbows at the top.
Ø Your back should be straight. Don't let it sag and don't
stick your butt up in the air.
