chair push upsAre you a fitness newbie looking for a good lower chest workout?

Would you like to know how to do push ups for beginners?

Incline Push Ups: Great for a Lower Chest Workout

  1. Stand a few steps away from a chair or sturdy raised surface, lean forward, extend your arms and place your palms flat at shoulder level onto the chair.
  2. Bend at the elbows and come close as close as possible to the chair (elbows bent at a right angle).
  3. Press through your palms and extend your arms.
  4. Be sure to keep your body straight from ankles to shoulders and rigid throughout the movement.

General Rule: The closer you have your feet together, the harder the exercise is to complete.  The further you separate your feet, the easier it is to complete a movement.
