How to do a Push Up

Start from a hand plank position .Place your hands slightly wider than your shoulders. Dig your toes into the ground to stabilize lower body. Tighten your Abs and flatten your back so your entire body is neutral and straight.

Begin to lower your body. Keep back flat and eyes focused  in front of you to keep a neutral neck. Lower till your chest almost touches the floor.. Don’t let your butt dip or stick out at any point  . Body should be in a straight line from head to toe. Draw shoulder blades back and down

Benefits

Push-ups are one of the best exercises to build full body strength as they strengthen multiple muscles and joints. To do a push-up your arms, shoulders, chest, back, abs and even your legs -- and all the joints that move when those muscles move -- need to activate to complete the movement.

While your chest muscle, is the main mover, your triceps on the backs of your upper arms and  shoulder muscles, are also stabilizer  muscles that play major roles.

Your  abs , quadriceps on the fronts of your thighs; and the spine all work to stabilize your body throughout the movement.

Beginners could start with a modified form of the Push up by resting their knees on the floor.
