This clip shows 3 common mistakes to avoid when doing push ups… The low back sway, the nose dive, and the elbows in the wrong place.
In order to make your push ups more effective it’s important to keep your body in a straight line, stay over top of your arms, keep your core tight, elbows out, and focus on your chest while performing the exercise.
If you have problems doing push ups because they hurt your shoulders or elbows… then these tips might help you to be able to do them once again. I’ve found with alot of people I’ve helped, it’s just a matter of re-adjusting form… sometimes it’s not, but alot of time it is.
