Getting Fit From Scratch: Your First 5 Moves

Push-up

  • Start with your body in a plank position, arms straight with hands under your shoulders, fingertips pointed forward.
  • Keeping abs engaged and back flat, bend your elbows to lower your body until just your chest touches the floor.
  • Push through your hands to raise back to your starting position, arms fully extended with elbows locked.
  • To make the push-up easier, place your knees on the ground, continuing to keep your abs engaged and back flat as you lower to the floor.
