The classic push up. It’s a classic for a reason, as this one is one of the most effective exercises around. This one will work out your chest, triceps, and the front of your shoulders.
- Start by lying down on your stomach. Then place your hands face down on the ground about shoulder-width apart with your wrists pretty close to your shoulders. You should point your toes down towards the floor.
- When you begin, push your body up, all while keeping your back straight and your body in one long line.
- Take a big breath in as you lower your chest to the floor, and exhale as you push yourself back up.
We suggest that you do 3 sets of 10 if you’re just starting out.
