VIDEO: How To Do A Perfect Pushup And Why It's Critically Important

There are 4 huge keys to doing a perfect push-up. In this video, I walk you through each point of how to do a perfect pushup in detail, so you can master this important exercise.

Why, might you ask, is it so important essential to be good at push ups?

It’s the most basic and simple form of an upper body pushing/pressing movement there is. All of the four points that I talk about in the video apply equally to every other pushing exercise too. If you can’t do a push-up properly, what makes you think you’ll be able to bench press, shoulder press, burpees or dip properly? Newsflash, you probably won’t be able to.

After you’re proficient in the basic push-up, you can continue to progress into more complex variations or build your capacity to maintain technique and stamina under fatigue.
