So now you know the importance, how do you do them?

  • Spread your fingers apart when doing press-ups and try to grip the floor. Doing so will allow for better centration at your shoulder (better stability through the joint) and should allow for greater force to be produced on the way up.x
  • Keep your elbows about 45º away from the hips. We don’t want to see your elbows in line with your shoulders. That will aggravate the shoulder at the AC joint in time.
  • Push the floor away through your hands and as you reach the top, think about spreading your shoulder blades and driving your spine up towards the ceiling.

If you can’t quite do them yet, what’s the best way to get to 10?
