HOW TO INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF SUCCESS . The push up is a goal for many people, and often a hard one to obtain. But it doesn't have to be. You just need a proper progression to get it.? . ? Anytime you build a progression, the more steps you can build between your starting point and your goal, the more likely you are to succeed. Because having "micro-wins" and being able to take baby steps will add up to big gains in the end. It doesn't mean that you have to use every baby step or that you can't progress faster, but having that option there really improves your chances of success. . It's for this reason that I'm not a huge fan of the knee push up as the progression to full push ups. Because it's just one step and that means you may be working at the knee push up forever and still lot build the strength needed for a full one. So when I build a push up progression, I like to start with an incline, where we can get micro progress by lowering down. Then we can move to eccentric push ups and finally to full push ups. We might even do a band assisted push up in between with a band attached to the pull up bar for an assist. . So follow that principle. ?? Build your micro progressions that build into a lot of progress. That applies for both performance and rehab. Because with each baby step you add, the more you increase your chances of success. . Tag a friend who wants to get their first push up and share the wealth! . #Prehab101
