Maria Leone, thank you for this dynamic class! I love your work! I would ask isn't it dangerous for shoulders to make Push ups with open elbows? I'm little confused because in a lot of classes push ups are with elbows close to the body. Please give me more info about the right performance of Push Ups! Thank you!
I am so glad you are inspired by the workout. There are many ways to perform a push up. I usually do more a fitness push-up because it enables the biceps, triceps, pecs etc to be involved. The elbow in position relies heavily on the triceps but it is how Joe did his push up. His push up is very influenced by chataranga position in yoga. Pay attention to the position of your spine and your shoulder heads and you should be fine. If you experience discomfort in your elbows limit your range of motion.
Love this class. I have been doing pilates for 7yrs in Sydney and struggling to do now on my own at home (thanks covid19). However, something about Maria's manner, approach, just makes me love her classes on all levels. Thank you, Maria.
