Robert Troch: Eight, nine, Hey, Jen.
Jen: Hey Robert.
Robert Troch: 100, 901. That's one of the best body weight exercises you can do. The pushup, if you do it right, will work almost every muscles in your body, chest, arms, shoulders, back, abs. You don't even have to do 900 the way I just did. You can combine them into one full package, which means on today's workout block, we are doing the burpee part 3, the pushup.
Host: Fusion Fitness TV, the place for your weekly health and fitness; start up, tune up, and shape up.
Robert Troch: Pushup basics; hands about shoulder-width, fronts of your shoulders slightly ahead of your finger tips, abs super tight, elbows tucked in your side, shoulders pulled downwards towards your hips, the pits of your elbows are facing forward, inhaling as you go down and exhaling as you come up. Elbows pointing outwards means disconnected shoulders. Here we see what is called the Military pushup and if done long-term, it's not good for your shoulders. Here we see sagging hips and head, the train has left the station and the caboose remains behind.
Now I ask you, does this look good for your back or your neck, because it looks terrible to me. Let's fix the shoulders first. Think of actually scrolling your shoulders into their sockets, use your lat muscles under your arm pits and practice squeezing the pits of your elbows forward. Here, Jen is actually using her lats to squeeze her weight down into what is called Chataranga in Yoga. Using your lats protects your shoulders and strengthens your back. To fix the sagging problem, we need to learn how to brace your abs tight that includes the center and all the way out to your sides, flat and tight.
At the start, pushups performed on the floor are difficult to do correctly. One way to make them doable is to elevate your hands on a box or a chair. Many women in particular made this modification to build the strength to build up to floor pushups. Jen still need some work here to -- okay, I guess she's had enough. Oh really, you actually want me to do them now. I am a little tired after those 900 but I'll try. So as you see here, everything moves as one unit, nothing left behind. I pull myself down to the floor, chest almost touching, then press back up using my abs, back shoulders, and arms. it's a great full body exercise and belongs in most people's exercise routines.
Come one Jen. Somebody out there get me some bandage because Jen is getting cut. Thanks Jen, good job. Now you all have three exercises to practice. Get good at them because next week we are going to combine all of them for the full out burpee. Please leave your comments at fusionfitnesstv.com/episode3, that's episode number 3. Until next week, thanks for watching.
