Push-up lesson learned: When in doubt always get the 🍕! #pizzaisbae 😂 lol
For all of you who asked for push-up modifications, here you go! And for the girl who asked why there was no pizza in my last post, it's baaack! Here is my advice on getting #strongereveryday and nailing these.
PLANK NAZI SAYS: HYPEREXTENDED BACK = NO PIZZA FOR YOU
Check this out. So in both the good form full push up and the modified push up, the body stays straight, protects the neck from injury, and gets you closer to taking a bite out of that pizza. Bad form keeps you farther away from pepperoni bliss and makes my neck... my back... bend in a way even the twerkiest music video chick wouldn't wanna do. Best way to get it done is to keep your body in line, modify on your knees, and remember to keep your spine neutral - looking slightly in front of you, down on the floor.
PLANK RULES STILL APPLY
Push-ups follow the rules of planks for your spine - keeping it in neutral (neck not too rounded down or too flexed up, and no hyperextending) will help a lot with body alignment. Abs stay firing even though this is also an upper body exercise! Your core will help with stabilization!
THERE IS NO "I" IN TEAM. BUT THERE IS T FOR TRICEPS, E FOR EFFORT, A FOR ARMS, AND M FOR MODIFICATION - if you have to!
The chest, shoulders and triceps, abs, and back all work as a team in this one, so it's ok to modify for a while before getting a full push up down. All of those muscles have to be strong to do it with good form! It took me about 6 weeks to do one full push-up! So don't get discouraged, and you will get stronger! Phew! Now who's up for some pizza? 🙋🏻🙋🏻🍕🍕#pizzaislife #caligirlgetsform #pushup #pushupchallenge #womensbest
