We see it all too often! Time to fix that mistake and keep those shoulders safe @hansenathletics ・・・ ARE YOU MAKING THESE COMMON PUSHUP MISTAKES?? - Here with some pushup tips for you! As you can see in the top photo, I’m shrugging my shoulders and allowing my elbows to point straight out at a 90 degree angle from my body. This not only over-engages the upper trap muscles, which tend to be overdeveloped already, but it also puts the shoulders in a vulnerable position. If you ever experience shoulder discomfort during pushups, this positioning error may be the cause! - In the bottom photo, you can see that I have “anti-shrugged” my shoulders by creating space between my upper traps and ears. This helps to engage the lat muscles and relaxes the upper traps. I also have my elbows closer to my body, pointing about 45 degrees away, which helps to keep my shoulders in a more optimal position! This is a general guideline and there’s definitely some wiggle room with the elbow angle, but somewhere in this vicinity will be ideal! - Share with a friend who’s working on their pushups, and give this post a double tap if you found it helpful!

Because who doesn’t love dogs? to Dixie, the at the first @hiddenalleycrossfit box. Did you know that Gio started out in a shared 1200sf facility? After 1 year he moved into the first home of Hidden Alley CrossFit. A year and a half later HAC moved into its now 4600sf facility. Time flies, but not a moment at this gym hasn’t been treasured
