Having The Correct Hip and Knee Movements is Essential (Image Source: Shutterstock)
  • Find and maintain a neutral position that supports your spine. Tighten your core and watch to make sure that you don’t arch or round your back.
  • When you lower your body, bend at the knees and hips, keeping your knees in line with your toes.
  • Drop your hips below your knees.
  • Get back into a standing position by pushing up through your heels.

Shoulder Press

  • Grab an empty barbell and hold it on your shoulders. Your grip should be only slightly wider than shoulder-width.
  • Push the bar up. This should be done directly overhead.
  • Once done, return to your starting position.
  • Do this for as many sets as you can, and add weight little by little when ready.

Push Ups (and Push Up With Hand Release)

  • Lower yourself to the floor, keeping your core intact and your back straight.
