Push Ups Challenge at Extreme Martial Arts
A push-up (or press-up) is a common calisthenics exercise performed in a prone position by raising and lowering the body using the arms. Push-ups exercise the pectoral muscles, triceps, and anterior deltoids, with ancillary benefits to the rest of the deltoids, serratus anterior, coracobrachialis and the midsection as a whole. Push-ups are a basic exercise used in athletic training or physical education and commonly in military physical training.
How to do right push-ups
- Lie on the floor face down and place your hands about chest apart while holding your torso up at arm’s length.
- Next, lower yourself downward until your chest almost touches the floor as you inhale.
- Now breathe out and press your upper body back up to the starting position while squeezing your chest.
- Begin to lower yourself downward again for as many repetitions as you can do.
