The Push-Up

ByCrossFitFebruary 11, 2019

“In an earlier time, the push-up was largely regarded as a measure of a person’s strength and fitness. In more modern times, much of this reputation has been passed on to the bench press, but the push-up’s passing misses the great opportunity to master a gateway movement to one of the most developmental progressions in all of fitness.”

— Greg Glassman, The Push-Up, CrossFit Journal, 2003

I have struggled with keeping my elbows in close to my body. Form is so important and it is worth the extra effort to do these movements properly.
