The Press Archetype: The Push Up and Midline Stability

posted in: spine, The Lab | 0


This week, Dr. Theresa Larson continues with this month’s theme of the Press Archetype by looking at the push up. The push up is arguably the most likely movement to be executed with sloppy and inefficient mechanics. By prioritizing midline stability, athletes can generate force more efficiently and keep the shoulders happy and healthy.



Progressions are a great way to break down movements for learning and fine tuning movements. In this Part 2 video of this week’s discussion on push ups and midline stability Dr. Theresa Larson of Movement Rx and Ray Regno of CrossFit Stronghold show you a simple progression to improve your push up mechanics and maintain midline stability.
