Push Up

A push-up is a demanding exercise that requires excellent core strength. If you have any shoulder or neck problems you may want to start with a “bent knee” push-up variation, where the knees remain on the floor during the push-up. For the straight leg variation:

  1. Kneel on floor, hands slightly wider than shoulders, fingers face forward.
  2. Straighten legs behind you, back straight, abdominals very tight.
  3. Keep your head in neutral alignment and your upper back as flat as possible.
  4. Slowly lower chest towards floor without arching back or dropping head.
  5. Exhale as you press your body back up to start position.
