Push-Up Overview

Push-ups are a great way to work your chest, shoulders, and triceps. They are also a good way to work your core muscles. Push-ups are a great exercise for beginners because they are relatively easy to do and they can be done almost anywhere.

Push-ups can be included in your chest exercises, upper-body workouts, and full-body workouts.

How to Do It 

  1. Start in a plank position with your hands directly under your shoulders and your feet hip-width apart. 
  2. Lower your body down toward the ground, keeping your elbows close to your sides. 
  3. Once your chest touches the ground, press back up to the starting position.
  4. Repeat for the desired number of reps

Push Up Tips

  1. First, be sure to keep your core engaged throughout the entire movement. This will help you maintain good form and prevent your lower back from sagging. 
  2. Focus on keeping your elbows close to your sides as you lower down—this will help work your triceps more effectively. 
  3. Be sure to exhale as you push back up to the starting position. This will help you keep your energy levels up and prevent you from holding your breath.

Healthier and Happier Life is One Step Away.
