And this is how “Pushup +” came to be…

Pushup with a plus is no ordinary pushup. It does not mean you do it with more vigor or hold it for longer times. What is it, really, and why this quirky name?

Watch this 2-min video where I discuss the amusing origins of the term, then tell us what you think!

Now, if you are curious, take the poll, below then check the very bottom to see how you did!

You can read more about Pushup + in the article “Electromyographic analysis of the scapular muscles during a golf swing”  in our research library. It’s available for free but you need to be a registered EDUCATA member. That is also free, and simple to do.

In closing, a question: do you have suggestions for a progression to get to a full push-up with a plus? If so, comment away!



PS: if you answered all of the Serratus, in the poll above, you are right!
