Would you like to know what a perfect push up looks like? Below, you’ll find a VERY important video and message from a friend and colleague who I trust EXPLICITLY with your exercise technique. And I don’t take that lightly! But first…
Practice makes perfect, right?
Perfect practice makes perfect.
Unless you strive for technical perfection in your training, you’re dabbling in the unknown. Random execution of ad hoc exercise technique will yield unpredictable results at best, and injury at worst.
Without a notion of proper technique, you can’t judge the level of intensity you can and should pour into your workout. But if you have an ideal to shoot for — a perfect 10 on the technique scale — then you have something to measure against.
You may not achieve a 10. In fact, if you do maybe it’s time to add some motor sophistication to your mix. But you MUST shoot for an 8 on a scale of 1 to 10. And as long as you can maintain that 8 or higher you can — you must — keep pushing your intensity levels up.
Technique is your cup. Intensity is water in your cup. Pour your glass to the rim. Give yourself as much as your glass will hold, but no more…
We’re often asked about the push up. What’s the perfect technique to shoot for? Well there’s no one (and I mean no one) who I’d trust more than my friend Dr Kareem Samhouri to give you the answer.
I only met Dr K a few short months ago. But he’s quickly become one of my most trusted advisers when it comes to biomechanics and exercise technique. It’s an honour to have him here.
First of all, Adam, thank you for having me. Adam is a great friend and a true pro. I’m honored to meet each one of you.
In case we’ve never met before, my name is Dr. K, or Dr. Kareem Samhouri. It’s my job to help people just like you burn fat as fast as humanly possible. I do this by combining Neuro Fat Loss techniques, my Triple M Method For Rapid Fat Loss, and helping people build strong, healthy joints.
In the video above, I describe the ‘Perfect Push Up,’ or all of the components of a ‘good’ push up. A lot of people don’t realize how to judge proper form, what speed to do their push ups, the critical fatigue point, and the variety of muscle sections you can target simply by changing your alignment. Adam and I will be back with more great videos this week – we’re really planning to hook you up here, and we’ve got some great stuff planned!
One favor, though, please take a moment and let Adam & I know what you thought of this video.
Basically, the more comments you leave, the better this is going to be for you – it’s a two-way street 🙂
Have a great day,
PS – I’ll be stopping by to answer any questions you have along the way – feel free to list them below…
