Sure, it’s basic, but how many people can say they can do a proper pushup? Place your hands on the floor directly under your shoulders with arms straight and get up on your toes so your body is elevated. Keep your back flat from head to heels, eyes facing down. This is the starting position, known as the plank.
Bend your arms to lower your body to a count of three until your chest and chin reach to about an inch or two above the floor. Now, straighten your arms to press your body quickly and forcefully to the starting plank position as you exhale on the way up. Repeat 12 times.
