Proper ring push-ups are HARD. I think Coach Tay Tay could tell you that after demonstrating about 100 today. Hopefully everyone learned a little more to perfecting your push-up position. Remember, we don’t teach things a certain way because “we say so.” We want to reinforce a good shoulder, hip, and back position so we don’t get painful shoulders, elbows, or lower backs (among other things). This holds true for push-ups done in MetCons. Don’t just work to get the reps done, work for the quality. Your body will thank you for it later. I think Dave “Parmesan” Parmly is a great example of a Ktowner always striving to get his technique down. He knows I hassle him, but he also knows it makes him a better athlete.

Keep on truckin,
<3 Coach Miss J

    I just hate being yelled at!

    Seriously, I have said it before: Visiting other boxes has given me a deeper appreciation for the superb quality of, and the genuine concern behind, the coaching we get at CFKT!
