Ozzi's Hawaii Parkour Drill Series Press ups
« on: May 14, 2012, 04:36:06 PM »
When I started doing the pushups here,

I feel a huge strain in my elbows. Is this desired or should I stop doing the pushups because they might damage the elbows?

If you're feeling a huge strain that's fairly normal if you're doing a harder variation.

I would in general avoid that particular variation for a bit until you are stronger... then after you get stronger with pressing movements you can come back to it
