Ron Jones: Push Up Exercises

Ron Jones in "1-Arm" Push Up

Directions: Perform my Dynamic Warm-Up exercises at “beginning” of workout for maximum benefit and improvement.
Pick a safe level; never be unsafe or exceed your capacity to “control” your body!

Note:  Some of the push ups are easy and some are extremely difficult.  Pick a safe level; never be unsafe or exceed your capacity to “control” your body! In addition to working arms, chest, and shoulders, push ups are very core oriented.  “Core” is the trunk area from waist to chest, front, sides, and back—all the way around.
