Know All about Power Push Ups
Push ups are the most convenient way to build up yourchest, shoulders, arms and upper back. It can be performedat any place, and you don't need to carry your gym with youwherever you go.
Do you know that most of the men who train with weightscannot do single handstand pushups? When I first found thisout I was stunned.
A few Things to keep in mind:
Ø Always keep your hands slightly wider than shoulder widthapart, with fingers together and pointing straight ahead.
Ø If you have ever had any shoulder pain, stick to the90-degree limit. Deeper push ups can stretch the shouldercapsule and put strain on the joint. This can cause pain.
Ø Start in the upper position with your arms straight.
Ø Inhale as you lower yourself towards the floor.
Ø Don't go lower than forming a 90-degree bend with yourelbows.
Ø Exhale as you push yourself up from the floor.
Ø Don't lock your elbows at the top.
Ø Your back should be straight. Don't let it sag and don'tstick your butt up in the air.
