Pushup Mistake #3: Elbows too straight out

Pushup Mistake #3-

So now that you’re focusing on keeping your butt and hips level, it’s time to check your elbows as you go down in your pushup. If they come down alongside your body, you’re good to go. If they go straight out and across, start training yourself to have them come down along your sides. To understand the pattern, stand up and act like you were going to push someone and bring your hands back past your chest. Apply that movement on the ground and that’s your pushup! This way will feel harder at first since now your using the middle chain of muscles down your body. After you activate your core, it will then get easier since your stomach and upper body instead of just the upper body.

Try the at home workout and tell me if you make it out without any burpees!
