This is a great total-body exercise that requires no special equipment. Start by standing up straight with your feet hip-width apart. Lean forward to place your hands on the floor. Bend your knees as much as you need in order to press your palms flat.
Walk your hands out until you are at the top of a push-up position. Make sure your wrists are directly below your shoulders. Keep your core tight and your head in line with your spine. Pause here; then, walk your hands back until they’re in front of your feet, and stand back up. That’s one rep. Beginners should aim for 10 reps, and more advanced exercisers can do 15-20. Rest, then repeat.
Make it harder: Add a full pushup. (Check out our tips for perfect pushup form
.) Aim for 15-25 reps.
