Use the Wall Push-Up to Connect Upper Arms and Mid-Back

In part two of our three-video series designed to help you find your upper core, AKA your mid-back, we’ll show you how to connect your arms and your mid-back.

This exercise has many important form points, so you’ll want to watch closely. You’ll get even more out of it if you follow along with the video.

This mid-back connection can be subtle and difficult to feel when you first try to make feel it, so the form points make all the difference in the world.

And before you try out today’s exercise, make sure you stretch your chest! Check out the first video in this series for a perfect pectoral muscle stretch: Wall Pec Stretch for Your Mid-Back Connection
