Tra­di­tional Push-Up

Alternative Medicine - - Quick Nutrition -

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.
