Typically a push-up is too hard when you are just starting out on a fitness plan. Here’s how you “introduce” a push-up into your workouts:
The Incline Push-up
1. Instead of starting on the floor, place your hands against the wall in front of you, a barre, or the edge of your kitchen counter!
2. Walk your feet back so your body is slightly angled in, keeping your abdominals (core) tight.
3. Lower your chest to the edge, keeping your shoulders down the whole time.
4. Squeeze the back of your arms and push away to return to the starting position. Work your way up to 20 repetitions.
