October is Physical Therapy Month. A great way to celebrate is to commit to getting better shape. Let us show you how. Each week in October we will challenge you with great exercises that will help you move better. So check in each Tuesday in October for the next exercise challenge.

This week’s exercise challenge is the push up. The push up is a great exercise not only for upper body strength, but also promotes trunk strength and stability. Trunk stability is a must for good function.  A push up can be modified to fit any fitness level. Check out this video to see how you might incorporate the push up into your exercise program.
