Some fitness professionals consider the push-up the ‘perfect exercise’ and it is easy to see why. The push-up requires no equipment other than you and works many parts of your body all at once. Not only does the push-up work your chest, but it also works your triceps and your core (huge bonus for riders). The push-up also helps create muscular balance and muscular balance creates increased strength.
Because the push-up offers so many physical benefits, it can be frustrating to feel challenged when trying to learn to do them correctly or trying to even do them at all. If you are looking for a modification that you can do in your own barn…I mean home…check out this Stable Fitness Tip from The Athletic Rider.
