The Ultimate Assistant Drill for a Real Push-up or one arm push-ups

Push-ups are very easy to do wrong and can be difficult to do correctly! In 16+ years of training people I've had 1% of women and 10% of men demonstrate a perfect push up on their first day. In fact most people, yes including men, have missing links with their push up. It can take months or even years to get a perfect push up depending on your history and body structure. Especially if you've ever been pregnant, had C-sections, hysterectomies, sit at a desk, or sit in a car. My C-sections destroyed my push ups for awhile and I had to start all over again after watching myself protect my abs while performing a bad push-up. Luckily I don't have this issue anymore but it was an issue for quite some time!

 I've shared push up progression videos in the past which have been very helpful. Check out my first push up progression video out before doing this assistant exercise I'm about to show you. Whether you're unable to keep your core and glutes tight throughout the movement, suffer from neck pain, low back pain, shoulder or elbow pain, taking your time with any push up progression is paramount. I'm going to share my all time new favorite assistant drill. Not only is it my new favorite but my clients are excited when they see push ups on the board now. Their push ups have doubled in results and I'm getting many more smiling faces since this specific progress. Ladies are making break throughs to a true real push up after practicing this assistant exercise. You're welcome!

p.s. This also works excellent for the advanced student that wants to do one arm push ups eventually!
