How to ensure good form in push-ups

This is a trick I recently learned to ensure good form while doing pushups.

You’ll need:
– A broom handle or other long, straight object
– A baseball cap
– A friend

Instructions
– Put on the hat
– Get into the push-up position
– Have the friend place the broom handle between your heels so it passes over your buttocks, between your shoulder blades, and onto your head. All four (heels, buttocks, back, head) should be touching the pole.
– Do a push-up. As you go down, your heels, buttocks, back, and head should still be touching the pole. Go down far enough that the brim of the hat lightly touches the ground, then go back up, still keeping your heels, buttocks, back, and head touching the pole. Repeat.

You’ll probably be able to do less pushups, but those that you do do will be more effective then more pushups done incorrectly. Enjoy your pushup-ing fun.
