Proper Pushup Mechanics for Shoulder Health with Greg Carver
Pushups are a staple of bodyweight strength and fitness. A military favorite, they can be done by anyone with proper scaling and instruction, and can be performed almost anywhere.
As with any bodyweight exercise, having proper mechanics is important. Pushups can strain the shoulders if not done correctly, leading to problems further down the road. Wrist strain and elbow pain are other common complaints, especially when you are doing high rep ranges.
