BFFs Heather and Chelsy do "floor elevated" push-ups. We prefer this modification rather than going to your knees so that we preserve the plank position during the push-up. As you get stronger you can lower the bar.
Scaling and modifying gymnastics movements, e.g. push-ups, pull-ups, toes to bar, pistols, is a reality for all CrossFitters at some point in their athletic development. As your technique improves and you get stronger gymnastics movements become much easier. For so many gymnastics movements technique is more important than strength. You can be as strong as an ox, but if you lack technique, you're not going to be able to do the movement. Toes to bar is one such movement. Check out today's Technique Tuesday video to learn how to overcome 4 common toes to bar mistakes. Pay attention to your technique and today might just be the day you get your first toes to bar! Good luck!
