Pushup Mistake # 1

Proper Pushups

If you want to get in great shape, you need to train yourself to be able to crank out pushups like no one’s business. Perfect form, smooth and controlled. You may think it sucks to do them but once your able to do proper pushups, all the way up, all the way down, you’re gonna’ feel like a badass. Being able to do pushups is also a sign that your core and upper body is activated properly. Pushups and their variations are no joke but they’re one of the best best body weight moves out there.

Let's go over a common mistake/compensation

A sunken in back! The back dips when it’s not supported by the core. If this happens when you’re doing a pushup, you have to strengthen your stomach to be able to maintain your body in a level position. Try out the workout written for 7 days. Time yourself on day 1 and keep choppin’ down your time. When your done with the 7 days, come check out pushup mistake #2.

I’m extremely bad at push up, it’s ridiculous. I can do the easier version but never in my life have I been able to do one. Looking forward to the next post in the series!

I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good. I don’t know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!

Awesome blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused .. Any tips? Thank you!
