Our Wellness Wednesday post on how to do a proper push-up comes to you from Coach Hanna and Kate! Many of you know that Kate has been dealing with an ongoing neck injury for years (even before she started BJJ). So, she started working one-on-one with Hanna to try to address the underlying causes. As it turns out, one of those things was bad pushup form!
Hanna told Kate not to feel bad. In fact, most people actually aren’t doing push-ups in what she calls the “proper” way. A “proper push-up” is a push-up that gives your body the MOST BENEFIT with the LEAST RISK of injury or strain.
