We heard from almost all of you who did the double baseline for our Whole Life Challenge that the push-ups were the worst part. Many of you decided you wanted to improve your push-ups. The best way to do this is to work improving your body position and movement mechanics. Here is a great series of videos from Carol Paoli on how to build a better push-up. You can practice getting into a better position if your push up is from the floor, a box or a bar, it doesn't matter the incline of your body. Just make sure you have good shoulder and wrist alignment and mid-line stability. Watch part 2, part 3 and part 4.
