Deficit Side-to-side Push-ups: Body weight exercise with focus on strength-balance and core/shoulder stability. The basic approach to this exercise is usually to perform side-to-side path push-ups instead of the standard descending-ascending path. It is performed on the floor with a wide stance hands positioning. The exercises allows for concurrent concentric and eccentric muscle contractions of the pectorals. On this one, I added kettlebells to be able to go deeper, as well as to challenge balance and shoulders/core stability.
Cues to self:
Keep the core, shoulders and grips tight.
Keep the shoulders blades retracted all throughout the range. Keep the shoulders depressed.
Keep the tension on point.
