Here’s three tips to help you obtain the perfect push-up.

  1. Keep elbows close to the body making a capital A-shape instead of a T-shape.

  2. Engage your core to keep your hips up, and maintain a straight and neutral spine to avoid pressure on the lower back.

  3. Hold this straight line now and bring your chest down between your hands, we don’t want to see any dreaded saggy hips here! 

Remember everything you do in the gym needs to be performed with good technique to prevent injury and correctly activate the muscles. If push-ups are too hard off of your toes you can always start on your knees or with your hands elevated on a bench to build up to it them.

Aim for 3 sets of 5-10 reps, 2-3 x per week and you will have perfect push-ups in no time at all!
