Sometimes I think people assume there’s only a couple of ways you can perform a push up. In fact there are so many versions that I can not keep track of them all. And I think at least one of those versions should be included some where in your workout. Yeah, it’s nice to bench press big weight, but what good is it if you can not even move your own bodyweight.
Here’s a video of the band resisted push up:
Start with a light band and work your way up from there. If you do not have a band, I suggest investing in a couple, because their uses are endless (assisted pull-ups, face pulls, pushdowns and X-walks to name a few). Go to PerformBetter.com and search for the Super Bands.
