Push-Ups are such a great exercise and are often left out in replace for barbells, dumbbells, cables and machines. Push-Ups require a lot of core stability and allow free movement of your scapula. These are all advantages of performing push-ups that you don’t get from bench press.
It is also beneficial to perform both high and low reps, just like any other exercise! You can add resistance with plates, weighted vests, or resistance bands. Plates can be tricky to set up on your own, but all you need to do is place it on your back and slowly get set up. If you are using multiple plates though you will need assistance!

Today’s target is 235 push-ups.
This number represents almost 2,350 males who lost their lives to suicide in 2017, which is approximately 75% of deaths due to suicide in Australia. Females experience mental health issues at higher rates than males, but males are less likely to seek help for them. Some spaces within our communities exist especially to support the mental health of the males in our lives, like the Men’s Shed. Men’s Shed provides open workspaces where males can socialise, work, or help out their communities. Check out their website here: http://bit.ly/2WB4zSV Or, if you or a male you know needs to talk to someone about mental health, Mensline is a national service for males providing referrals, counselling and support. Call 1300 78 99 78 (24 hours a day).

Are you struggling with 𝐜𝐚𝐥𝐜𝐮𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 your 𝐦𝐚𝐜𝐫𝐨𝐬, setting up 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐭, and designing an 𝐞𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐤𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐞? -
Push-ups are an awesome exercise. They primarily work your chest but also hit your triceps and shoulders. I love push-ups because they can be done almost anywhere, you don't need equipment, and there are endless varieties. You can vary your hand stance, you can add weight to your back, you can elevate your feet, you can clap in between reps etc. Even if you go to a gym, they can be added in as a superset or a finisher to your chest workout. That’s what I’ve been doing recently (today actually....it’s on my story at the moment).
The most common mistakes I see on pushups are flared elbows and a rounded back where the person’s butt is higher than their back. You should keep your elbows tucked, back straight, and focus on lowering yourself until your chest touches the floor and then press back up. People think that because push-ups are a body weight exercise, you can’t get injured but you can easily hurt your shoulders with improper form.
