Dr. Michael Horowitz's Stretch of the Day Series

Exercise of the Day: Push-Ups

Push-ups

1.       Start by having your palms flat on the mat, a little wider than shoulder width apart and palms directly under your shoulders. Feet should by hip width apart and weight on the front quarter of feet. Hips should be down in line with your spin.

2.       Inhale as you lower your body down, keeping a straight line, abs in tight, head up.

3.       Lower down to just before your chest touches the ground, and exhale back up to start.

 


Avoid doing these too fast and losing form. Don’t let momentum take away from the purpose of each push-up…. To develop  tone & strength in the muscle of the arms & chest.
