alright guys how’s it going TRX traveler Adam here and this vid we’re going to look at band press-ups two different variations are normal and wide let’s get to it okay I’m going to be totally honest you don’t really need a band if you do press-ups with the correct intention the correct technique I don’t even use it cuz it’s just too hard even with a super easy level one like this I find it it’s too difficult and now there’s no harm in just using the band as always if you just want to move if you want to sweat you want to bring out some reps just put it over you I always like to put it kind of like that across my palms it’s about just fine where doesn’t really hurt where doesn’t feel awkward and there’s no harm in just getting down get a nice position and just blasting them out like this you know and I think that’s what a lot of people do and that’s fine there’s a time the place for that it’s no problem it can raise a heart rate you can get a sweat it’s good to you know finish off of the burn however with intention right with the right intention right technique you can focus putting all the load just on your chest which is what we want when I’m just pumping them out like that I can feel so much engaged I can feel my chest my arm muscles are coming in my back’s engaging my cup my course taking a bit of load not that that’s necessarily wrong but if you’re looking for development for the chest which is what the press ups for it is because we want to isolate the chest and just put all the load on that so the key point to do that I’m going to take away the band for now just to show you when you’re in the press up position you want your hands a little bit outside shoulder width and what I want you to constantly do throughout is try and push your hands together on the floor constantly can’t see be trying on the way up you’re trying on the way down and I always like to go down for four seconds no pause at the bottom and explode up for one second no pause and down so you kind of keep this bit of a slow pump and pressing up so let’s give it a try yet just push your hands together and know it’s the difference yeah I’ll show you how much I struggle just for this so I’m going down hands just outside right and now I’m pushing them together and I’m going down for one two three four no to the ground and four one two three four and up down four one two three up there four one two three four up and you can see I’m starting to struggle already so what I do normally I get to about six or seven and I go on my knees and I keep the momentum going but I just I’m on my knees so it’s a little bit less and I’m still pushing my hands together X blown up put down four one two three four explode up there four one two and sometimes I’ll get so tired that I just have to do little pumps like this until I’m exhausted and I’m flattered so that is how to perform the press up with intention and you will feel how much by doing that and it makes sense yes so when you’re doing flies for example TRX flies you always straighten your arm at the top straighten your arms why because we take the load off the shoulders now as we straighten our arms and push them together you can see here it contracts it makes the pectoral muscle contract same principle on the press up you’re pushing your hands together it’s making the pectoral muscle constantly contractor up the whole range of motion so all the load is placed on your chest and you can feel it so much more I normally if I do four sets of press ups I can do eight normal six normal for normal three normal so then I have to to do my four sets of a to have to then go on my knees to finish off the rest of the set it’s hard I’ve been doing these for yes and it there aren’t very very hard and the more you push hands together harder is so it really exhaust you now once with that in mind that key isolation that key principle has then no harm and cutting of Andover and doing them and seeing how many you can get and be honest I probably can’t get mom two or three except adds a lot of tension same principle with wide hands you still want to be pushing them together all why does vary from from narrow it just takes a different angle a different variation on your chest but there’s no harm in it but really it’s like the different variations of it of it of a bench press you know where’s the best one well the best one is probably where you going to get a full range of motion which is just outside of you shoulder width so you can press all the way up you can press all the way down if you’re a little bit outside can kind of only press like this you’re not getting a full range of motion a full lengthen and shortening of the pectoral so there’s no harm in that the wide ones I incorporate them into my plans because I think it’s a time and a place for them and I think they’re great for editing super sets with as well normal and back-to-back but that is how to do a press up so if you’re quite advanced I’d say bring the band in and give it a try or if you just look into build strength you know however if you’re looking to sort of go more hypertrophy ranges which is more stuff you know it sets it 12 sets I would just focus on practice and without the band for now and then may be incorporated in your last set for one or two just really exhausting to feel what it’s like and yes so the link is you want this band this is below and I hope that was useful and thanks very much for watching [Music]
