Push-ups. Oh how I love to hate the. You do the body so much good, but too many and you bring me to my knees. 

Seriously, push-ups are a tough exercise. There are also a bazillion varieties out there. Fly push-ups, clap push-ups, decline push-ups, spider push-ups. Ahhh! 

The type of push-up you should be doing depends on your fitness goals, but if you just want to master the classic push-up, I’m here on this Wild Workout Wednesday to show you how to do the perfect push-up

I know what many of you may be asking: What the heck?! I thought my elbows were supposed to go out at a 90 degree angle. Whatchu talkin’ bout, Willis?

You certainly can do a push-up that way, but keeping your elbows in tight toward you body and slightly turning out your hands helps to protect your shoulders from unnecessary stress. It’s also killer on those triceps. 

When you lower down, go all the way down the floor. All. The. Way. The chest should be touching asphalt, cement, wood (that sounds wrong), whatever floor you’re on before you come back up.

If you need to, drop down onto your knees. Ain’t no shame in that. I do it all the time when I have to do a million sets in CrossFit. Other than dropping your knees down, your form should stay the same. 

Alright, now drop and give me 20!
