Perfecting Your Pushup

At the moment at the gym I’m working on a strength programme and trying to become “awesome” at push ups is one of the things I am taking time out to do. In order to improve the strength for this move I’ve been practising negatives.

Basically you start in an extended plank position and slowly lower yourself towards the ground. At the bottom use your knees to get you back into the starting position and repeat. I usually perform 5 reps to a total of 5 sets. Here’s a quick demo.

Add these little beauties into your gym routine – give them a go for 4-6 weeks and then test your push up.


Let’s get stronger together!
