Mar 14, 2024 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

In our latest episode, we explore the fascinating stories of two individuals navigating the challenges of mastering the push-up despite their unique injury history. Both individuals had different pain experiences with this movement. 

Remember-What set them up? 

What kept them there? 

We explore why the push-up experience varied greatly between these 2 people and why it was so unique in these 2 individuals. 

“Push” is a part of daily life whether we realize it or not from pushing open an umbrella to pushing a door open to a full push-up on the floor of a declined bench. The “What set them up?” is a significant factor in how they were assessed and treated. 

One individual was a former boxer and the other held a desk job but had an extensive exercise and injury history. 

Join us as we unravel the complex interplay of factors shaping each individual’s journey toward mastering this seemingly simple yet profound exercise.
