Push-ups for everyone


Start lying on your stomach, legs extended and hand next to your bust line. Bend your knees and cross at your ankles.


Push your upper body up, chest, ribs, stomach, hips, thighs, (pull your stomach in) and stop before you get to your knees. Slowly lower back down using your arms, bending at the elbow and think of dropping the chin to the floor. Make sure your elbows are going out to the side of your body not behind. Before you get all the way back down push back up and create a range of motion that works for you. As you gain strength, you will create a larger range of motion.


On the Ball


Using an exercise ball is another great way to do pushups and gain strength and stability. Check out the video for specific directions.


Here, There and Everywhere!


Counter tops, your desk at work, or any wall can be a great way to get your pushups in. Using the same hand position, your body at an angle and a tight core, just set up and push up!! Check out the video for examples.
