Exercise of the Week

The Push Up

Push up

How To: Start off in a hollow body position with arms straight with hands directly under your shoulders. (Refer to picture above)  In one continuous and controlled motion bend your arms until your chest touches the ground and then return back to the starting position.   During this exercise your body should not move from the hollow body position.  If you are not able to touch your chest and return to the starting position try doing a push up on your knees instead of toes (See picture below).  Range of motion is important in developing strength.
