Push Ups


  • Beginners: start from your knees
  • Intermediate: Start from your toes
  • Start with your hands slightly wider than shoulder width, arms straight
  • Keep them inline with your chest/shoulders (Not inline with your head)
  • Contract your abdominals and hold a slight pelvic tilt to keep your back straight
  • Make sure not to dip at the hips
  • Keep your head inline with your spine throughout the entire movement


  • Begin to lower your body towards the floor by bending at the elbows
  • Be sure to pull your shoulders away from your ears, keeping your neck long, and bring your shoulder blades together (towards your spine) as you lower your body towards the floor


  • Exhale as you push your self back up to the starting position
  • Keeping your shoulders pulled away from your ears and your neck relaxed
