The Move: How to Do a Proper Push Up
Today’s workout move is the infamous push up. Love it or hate it, pushups are the go-to exercise when building strength. This all-around good exercise works almost your entire body, activating the lower body muscles and firing the biceps, triceps and chest.
How to Do a Push Up
- Come to your hands and knees. Place the hands about shoulder-width apart. Align your arms directly under the shoulders.
- Balance on the knees or toes. Squeeze the butt muscles and engage the core.
- Lower the body down to the floor in a straight line then press the hands against the floor to return to the start position.
