“How to”: Push Ups For Triathletes
Deal with shoulder or neck pain swimming, or in the pool? Chances are your shoulders are not where they should be.
Pushups are crucial for shoulder strength and stabilization. But only when we focus on proper mechanics. One way to do this: start with the same basic athletics skills needed in the squat and apply them to the pushup. Once we do these, we realize that squats and pushups are more similar than different. Looked at in the right way, both become powerful skill transfer exercises to swimming, cycling, and running.
