Are my pushups better than yours?
Maybe .. maybe not, but the main reason I like this kind of suspension pushup is the because they really force you to stabilize your shoulders. Let me explain …
When performing the “normal” suspension pushup, the weight of your body pushes down on the straps. This in turn forces the straps to “squeeze” your elbows. This is good … in that it almost guarantees that you’ll perform the pushup as it was intended … with the elbows in close to the side.
But not everyone needs to be “forced” into performing a correct pushup. I already know how to do a pushup … and I really didn’t like the straps rubbing against my arms/elbows.
So, I modified my straps to “free up” my elbows …and HOLD ON NELLY… the change made a HUGE difference !! Doing the pushups with my modified straps increased the instability factor tremendously. Watch the video below and you’ll see what I mean.
When you’re finish reading the latest shoulder rehab and performance links below, make a set of straps like mine and give these pushups a try …. you’ll be very surprised.
