🔥 PUSH UPS: TREATING YOUR HANDS LIKE YOUR FEET FOR PROPER EXECUTION?👇
✅ Do your shoulders hurt when doing push- ups? No matter how hard you try, your shoulders always tend to internally rotate, and cause you shoulder impingement as a result.
✅ Ever thought about distributing the load differently on your hands and actually treating them like your feet ?
💪 What do I mean?
🚨 Well, if you think about it, distributing the load on your hands more externally, will give an external rotation cue which will eventually help you lock your shoulder blades back together and squeeze your chest out safely, so that you can perform push-ups correctly. If you actually try it yourself and pay more attention to it, you’ll notice that your shoulders will most likely stay externally rotated.
On the other hand (pun intended), treating your hand like a “flat feet” with a collapsed arch and placing the weight internally, will most likely cause your shoulders to rotate inwards through the internal rotation cue implemented at the bottom.
1️⃣ set your hands at a distance that is slightly wider than shoulder-width apart
2️⃣ Your feet should be set up in a way that feels right and comfortable to you.
3️⃣ Think of your body as one giant straight line.
4️⃣ Your head should be looking slightly ahead of you, not straight down
5️⃣ At the top of your push up, your arms should be straight and supporting your weight
