Planks, Push-ups, and Pain Prevention

Hi!  Often I have clients that struggle with planks, push-ups, and any modification or variation thereof.  For this past year, I have done push-ups with most of my classes every single day and now, lo and behold, they are achieving what they once thought to be impossible.  In the following video, I share with you my tips for proper alignment through your thoracic (shoulders/ribs), abdominal (NOT  just the front 8 pack, people!) and pelvic alignments.  I begin with your hands and go all the way to the feet.  Like I tell my clients:  Planks and push-ups are not upper body exercises. They are full-body integrated exercises!

I also discuss the head positioning and it’s importance to alleviate neck and shoulder pain as well as why you should NOT be doing 5 minute Plank Challenges!

Let me know how these tips work for you!
