Strict (Military) Push Up
The push-up is one of the greatest general conditioning exercises and you can do them anywhere, no equipment required. “You always have ground," the push-up targets the chest, shoulders, and triceps and works your core, back, and legs. It packs a serious punch for such a seemingly simple exercise, but you aren’t doing yourself any favors if your form isn’t dialed.
Great push-up form starts with a rigid plank. Your arms should be fully extended, with your hands, elbows, and shoulders all in line, and your feet should be no more than 12 inches apart—the closer together, the more difficult the push-up, because it requires more core activation for stability. Throughout the push-up movement (unless otherwise specified by a variation), your spine should be neutral, so that your body forms a straight line from your feet to the crown of your head. Remember to engage your core and thighs to keep your hips flat
Once you’ve perfected your form, push-ups are an excellent way to warm and they’re great mixed into workouts for general conditioning. Plus, there are endless ways to modify them for your own specific needs. Here’s a guide to the classic push-up.
What It Does
Strengthens the upper body—primarily the chest, shoulders, and triceps—as well as the core and back muscles.
How to Do It
Start in a standard push-up position (as described above), with your feet together or no more than 12 inches apart, hands flat on the ground below your shoulders, and arms straight. Breathe in as you bend your elbows—keep them tracking back alon
