Benefits of Performing Push-up
There are numerous reasons you should be including push-ups in your programming, but here’s just a short list.
Upper Body Strength
While push-ups don’t get the acclaim that the bench press does with regards to upper body strength, there’s no doubt they can help.
The bench press is superior if the only goal is pure, upper body strength. That’s hard to argue. But if you’re looking at the ability to use your body holistically, or to move your entire body through space effectively, then the push-up may be a better choice in that regard.And when you factor in all of the various progressions with regards to load, instability and leverages, there are tons of push-up variations to help you get there.
It’s rare that I see a client or athlete whose core strength and stability are sufficient. Most are woefully bad, whether they’re a young client starting out or even a professional athlete.
Therefore I’m always looking for ways to get more core training into their programming, beyond just the typical core training exercises thrown in at the end of their session.By using various push-up variations and progressions, I can challenge the core more frequently during the workout, and therefore get a faster response.
Unifies the Core, Upper and Lower Body
Taking the previous point a step further, push-ups do a great job of integrating the upper body, core and lower body all into one movement.
As mentioned above while the bench press includes the core to a degree, in the push-up, the core (when weak or unstable) can become a limiting factor if not brought up to par.Furthermore, athletes don’t just need upper body strength, but the ability to demonstrate or express upper body strength strength while stiffening the core and lower body. In this regard, I actually find the push-up superior to the bench press.
Alternative to Benching
Whether it’s due to a bum shoulder, or a sheer avoidance of the lift for any reason, the push-up can be a viable alternative to bench pressing.
I have more than a handful of athletes who are unstable through the shoulder, and it’s more due to passive/structural issues than active instability. Unless they get a surgery (which is entirely unnecessary for performance in their sport), bench pressing shouldn’t be a focus in their program.As such, these athletes will use push-up variations instead.
Learn How to Reach
Last but not least, one of the key reasons I might choose a push-up over a bench press is because it teaches my clients and athletes how to reach.In a bench press, the goal is to lock the shoulder blades back and down to increase stability. And while this is great for a bench press, it’s not necessarily ideal for our shoulder mechanics.
Instead, a push-up can teach someone how to reach using their serratus anterior. When tied together with proper breathing, this can really open up the back side of the body, including the upper back (or posterior mediastinum).Now that we’ve covered a few of the benefits of including push-ups, let’s walk step-by-step through the set-up and performance of the lift.
