How to do a Push Up Ep 1

Here is what are we looking for: 1) You want your feet to be a fist width apart, and toes FULLY extended. 2) Your glutes and abdominals should be active and engaged to stabilize your core and pelvis in neutral. 3) Your shoulder blades need to be mobile on your rib cage as you go through your movement 4) Elbows should track over and be in line with your wrists 5) Your neck should stay NEUTRAL! At the end of the day, the top position of you push-up shouldn’t look to different from an AMAZING plank!
