Show Video Show All Exercises
  Kneel down and place hands slightly wider than shoulder width. Keeping legs straight, push body up. Keep abs tight and back straight. Keep arms extended and in line with the chest. Shoulders can be slightly squeezed together (retracted). Throughout motion, shoulders form 90 degree angle to body. In a controlled motion, start lowering body until upper arms are approximately parallel to floor. Elbows must remain over hands. While maintaining the controlled motion, push body up to starting position without locking out elbows. Do not allow muscles to relax before next repetition.
