Pushups

Main muscles worked: Chest, front delts, tricpes

How to perform this exercise?

  • Use a hand width that you’re comfortable with and where you feel strong
  • Lower yourself until your chest touches the ground, the push yourself up again
  • Keep your core tight and focus on keeping your body straight during the entire movement

Note: Elbows should be at a 45-60 degree angle. If your shoulders hurt during this exercise, it might be because you point your elbows directly out to the sides in a 90 degree angle. Instead have them closer to your body or at least in the angle where I have mine.

If you can’t do them on the ground, you can do them with your hands elevated. From there, slowly work your way down towards the ground.
