Press Ups

View Exercise Info

Exercise Cues:

  1. Lie on the floor face down and place your hands about 36 inches apart while holding your torso up at arms length. Tip: at the midpoint of the movement your elbows should be at 90 degrees.
  2. Next, lower yourself downward until your chest almost touches the floor as you inhale.
  3. As you exhale press your upper body back up to the starting position while squeezing your chest.
  4. After a brief pause (1-2s) at the top position, you can begin to lower yourself downward again, continue this for as many sets and repetitions prescribed.


  1. When lowering yourself down keep your core strong and activate your back so that you keep your hips and torso straight.
  2. Make sure you keep your head in line with your torso so that you are not straining your neck muscles to help push yourself back up.
