Tim adds some weight and depth to his push-ups.
Movement exposes weakness in your musculoskeletal system through pain. Pain does not necessarily mean there is an is an injury, but weakness will lead to injury. Why is it that only one shoulder, not both, will hurt in a sumo-deadlift high pull or kettlebell swing to overhead? If the movement was a “bad” movement, then both shoulders would get hurt in every person who makes these movements, but we don’t see this. Of course, the pain cannot be ignored either. If you continue to push through the pain, you’ll certainly end up injured. You have to address the problem, but the movement is not the problem, the mechanics of the tissues and joints in the area of pain is where the problem is. Fix the problem, then get back to work.
