Push-Ups

 

Set yourself into a push up position with your legs and feet together, your hands beneath your shoulders and your arms straight. Lift your body with your hands, and make sure your body is in a straight line from head to toe.

Inhale as you slowly bend your elbows and lower yourself until your elbows are at a 90° angle. Exhale as you begin pushing back up to the start position. Make sure you dont lock the elbows, keep them slightly bent.

After each push up get into child’s pose position. Extend your arms and push back sitting on your heels. Relax and slowly bring your body back to push up position. Repeat two to three times.
