Training Tip of the Week: T-Stabilization Push-up
Updated: October 18, 2011
By Scott Goodpaster
The T-Stabilization push-up is a great exercise that simultaneously develops strength and flexibility. This kind of strength and flexibility is needed to survive many wrestling positions, such as arm bars and posting.
• Focus on straight alignment through the heels, knees, hips, spine, and neck through the entire movement
• Keep core tight
• Focus on pushing the ground away, keeping a big chest. This helps to keep the shoulders stabilized
Demonstrating this exercise is Scott Goodpaster, CSCS, the Director of Cincinnati Functional Fitness. Goodpaster is an MMA Certified Strength & Conditioning coach and nationally recognized in the field of strength & conditioning for wrestlers.
