How To Complete a Push Up Plus
Serratus Anterior Strengthening
Our shoulders were built to move, but in order for them to functional properly we need good clean shoulder blade movement! A lot of us tend to focus on lift and pull movements of our shoulder, but forget about the push movement which our “scapula” do. This movement is important as it not only strengthens our shoulder but also gives it the stability it needs so that it can do all the awesome things you want it to. Here is exacty how to perform the push up plus and strengthen those serratus anterior muscles of yours.
Begin on your hands and knees, and line up in a push-up position – with your elbows locked and low back neutral. Keeping your core engaged, squeeze your bum and focus on maintaining a neutral spine. Now, push your shoulder blades away from each other spreading them apart. Slowly bring your shoulder blades back together and repeat.
Do this for 6-8 reps and repeat 3 times (as tolerable).

Right, there’s more in your incline, the more difficult this becomes. So if I’m on my imaginary wall and I’m here and I’m leaning into the wall. And then I’m just pushing the wall away from my body and then coming back in. But of course my body would be moving back and back in.
If that’s easy,
Your elbows are locked, they’re not bending up and down as you do this. The next level from this obviously going into a full push up on your knees and you’re doing the same movement there. And then into a full push up doing that plus position.
Okay and we want to feel the push up plus as you’re in the push up position but you’re just doing this plus part of it. And all of that whole push through set. That stuff’s too tough, right? We don’t want to do that. We want to just focus on the shoulder blade awesomeness. So any questions, leave them below. You going to go through again. Vertical, a little more incline, all fours, on your knees and then into full plank position for your push up plus.
