How To Do A Push Up Exercise Video Demonstration and Guide

The push up is one of the classic bodyweight exercises that targets the chest, triceps, and shoulders, and can be done anywhere as it requires no equipment.

To get started:

  1. Get down on the floor with your arms straight, hands just outside shoulder width and directly below your shoulders.
  2. Ensure your body maintains a straight line from your feet all the way up to your head.
  3. To keep your body rigid in a straight line, and reduce any sagging, keep your abs, your glutes, your quadriceps, and hamstrings tight throughout the movement.
  4. To lower your body to the ground, bend your elbows until your chest hovers just above the ground.
  5. Contract your chest and triceps to push yourself back up to the beginning position.
  6. Repeat.
