Move of the Month
Certified Personal Trainer Jeff Keller recommends push-ups for general upper body strength, as well as a toned and strong core.
To perform a push-up:
Get into plank position, body in a straight line. Evenly weight the hands, while keeping your shoulders down and back. Do the push up with a shoulder angle of 45 degrees and keep your core engaged. Your head should be in a neutral position, looking at the floor. Raise yourself up by pushing the ground away from you. Don’t lock your arms out when straightening them. Lower your torso towards the ground, Repeat. Think of your push up as a dynamic plank!
