Proper Exercise Technique

By keeping your hands close together-about two inches apart-the traditional push-up emphasizes the triceps. To do this exercise, lie on the floor with your feet together and your hands flat on the floor-thumbs facing inward. Keep your body straight and your elbows tucked in at your side while you push up until your arms are fully extended. Hold for a second and then lower yourself until your chest is about two inches off the floor and then repeat.
