Push-up Progression is a 24 push-up journey in stabilization, strength, and power achieved by performing a variety of unique and demanding push-up techniques. This book discusses how crucial the push-up is to training not just the upper body, but the core and lower body as well. By strength training your core-stabilization muscles first, and your core-movement muscles second, you will create overall functional strength while obtaining that lean, aesthetic look we all desire. Performing these push-ups will also improve your posture drastically while you develop more strength in your upper and lower body. The push-ups outlined in this book can be performed quickly and conveniently at home or on the road. Most importantly, no matter your fitness level, Push-up Progression shows you how the push-up can benefit everyone. The 24 push-ups are categorized into sections on stabilization, strength, and power. There are also sections on hand and arm positioning, stretching, core training, and a progression and program section.
