Learning the Banded Push Up will help you gain confidence and improve your range of motion in a regular push up. After placing your band just above your elbows, make your way into a tall plank position, hands grounded below your shoulders. Your full back body should be engaged in a straight line from head to heel. Drop down as low as you can with the help of the band. Keep your elbows close to your side as you drop down into a push up, and activate your core, glutes, and quads tight to stay stable throughout the full motion. The resistance band will come into play when you push back up to high plank.
