Member Reinhardt Seyffertitz is demonstrating our exercise of the month:
The Push Up.
The Basic Push-up trains your chest, shoulders, triceps, and core. nother benefit of body-weight training is that it’s low-impact. As a result, you can train more frequently than if you were using heavy weights, and the more often you work out, the greater your potential to build muscle.
- Position your body with your arms straight out, abs tight, holding your body in a plank position.
- Hands and arms should be positioned slightly below your shoulders, fingers pointed forwards. Shoulders are pushed down away from your ears.
- Lower your body until your chest is an inch or two above the floor, elbows pulling back at roughly a 45 degree angle.
- Push your torso away from the ground until your arms lock, then repeat.
