by Dave Thomas
USAW, NSCA, CNC, CPT
In Episode 9 of Coach Dave’s The Movement Fix, he leads us through a movement hack for the push-up. Where you distribute your weight in your hands is going to correlate directly to activating the correct musculature.
What will today’s episode cover?
We’ll learn where our weight should be distributed across our hands on the push-up. Surprisingly, this can make a major difference in the amount of reps you perform, and the quality of those reps.
What happens if I don’t watch?
You may flare out with your elbows, over stressing your shoulders and under-developing your triceps.
