MEASURES: A push-up is a great measure of upper body and core strength. Having strength in these areas allows you to maintain good posture, balance, and stability.
MIRROR MOVEMENT: I’M NOT SAYING I CAN’T, BUT… If your push-up was in poor form, that can indicate which areas of your body could use the most attention in terms of strength exercises. If you didn’t make it down the entire way, you lack strength in your arms, shoulders, and chest. If you struggled to maintain rigidity in your back or legs and allowed either your hips or lower back to sag, this suggests a weakness in your core and glutes.
