Banded Push-up Modification
Written by Melissa Hurley

Are you unable to do a solid push-up from your toes? Do you have a couple but wish you could rep out 10-15 more? Give this option a shot.

Measurable and Attainable:
The banded push-up gives you a measurable and attainable route to doing more push-ups. Keep track of the hole number (on the rack) and the band strength you use. Once you’ve reach a solid number (15-20+reps) unbroken, use a thinner band or go down a couple holes on the rack. Now you know you’re making progress and moving in the right direction.

Form:
The banded push-up helps support the hips and belly where most of us tend to break into a jeopardizing swayed (hyperextended) back position. You still have to do the work, but the band gives you feedback and a little assistance to achieve your goal. You’re also less likely to put your shoulders into an incorrect position because form won’t deteriorate so quickly.

Give the band a shot for you or for your members and let me know what you think.
