Description

How to do Push-Ups:

 

- Place your hands firmly on the ground, directly under shoulders.

- Ground your toes into the floor to stabilize your lower half.

- Brace your core (tighten your abs as if preparing to take a punch), engage glutes and hamstrings, and flatten your back so your entire body is neutral and straight.

- Begin to lower your body—keeping your back flat and eyes focused about three feet in front of you to keep a neutral neck—until your chest grazes the floor.

- Don’t let your butt dip or stick out at any point during the move; your body should remain in a straight line from head to toe.

- Draw shoulder blades back and down, keeping elbows tucked close to your body (don't "T" your arms). - Keeping your core engaged, exhale as you push back to the starting position.
