Push ups at home!
Believe it or not, push ups are an entire body workout! As good as they are for you, they can create pain in your upper body such as shoulder pain, upper back pain, and even hand pain. Your body can take months of bad movements before you can start feeling discomfort.
So, here are a few tips to help you improve your push ups at home:
1. Spread your fingers
2. Do not "worm" your way up and down.(if you must, start on your knees)
3. Tighten your core (believe it or not, you can develop more strength in your abs by doing just push up)
4. Do not stick your butt out. Once you tighten your core, it will help you with this problem!
5. Breathe in when you go down and breathe out when you come up
**Extra tip. Tighten/flex your legs🤯
