Are you struggling with push-ups? Are you not entirely sure about where to begin? If you are getting strange looks from writhing about on the floor in vain attempts at a push up, then I’d love to get you started down the right path to fitness glory! Here is a simple walkthrough that just may help you today and an additional recommendation to keep you going for the next month or so.

Elevated Push-Ups

chair push ups

  1. Place a stable surface in front of you
  2. Bring your knees together
  3. Place your palms on the surface with your arms straight
  4. Keep your body rigid from your knees to your shoulders throughout the movement
  5. Bend the elbows 90°, pause, then push back up, extending the elbows

Go downward for about a 3-count, pause, then push back upward for a 3-count. Once you are able to do 15-30 repetitions for 4 sets with 1-minute rest between sets, you have certainly mastered this basic version of the push-up.
