Tutorial Tuesday: Push-up

Traveling Tutorial Tuesday is back and since Brian just finished watching some Tony Robbins videos, he's doing this one over a bed of hot coals.

You may think the push-up is a basic exercise that no one can screw up, but there's certainly a correct way to do it. There are a few common mistakes we frequently see in class.

When done correctly, the push-up is a great functional movement which will strengthen primarily the pectoral, tricep, and shoulder muscles, while also engaging your core. Since it's a bodyweight exercise, it can be done virtually anywhere. Plus, dozens of variations can be used to spice things up!

Check out our tips for the standard push-up below.
