YES, every girl can do a perfect push-up!

Girls gone strong! The push-up exercise is one of the best all-encompassing exercises. Do you like to strengthen and shape your chest, shoulders, triceps and glutes while toning your core too at the same time? Well get motivated girls, because today I’ll explain how you can perform the basic perfect push-up and YES! every girl can do this!

The beauty of the push-up exercise is that you can perform this workout almost anywhere and anytime, because you don’t need any equipment. Just you and your girl power 😉 Besides working so many muscles at ones, you’ll burn calories too. So, YES! push-ups will really do your body the most good!

I also think that you gotta learn to love it! I wasn’t a big fan at first, but once you feel you’re getting stronger and see your arm-jiggles disappear you’ll start appreciating. So let’s do it girls, read now HOW to do it!

How?
Start position: Start with positioning hands palms down on the floor at shoulder-width, place them slightly “next” to your shoulders. Get into a plank position, tighten your core and keep your face down.
Movement: Now lower your body until your chest nearly touches the floor. As you lower your body, bend your arms in an 45-degree angle so that your elbows point towards your toes. Pull your elbows close to your body.
Finish: Push your body back up into a press up position. Use your arms to do this as quickly as possible and make sure your body makes a straight line from head to heel as a “plank” the entire time.

GO!: Start with 4 sets of 15 reps with 30 seconds rest.

Beginner: You can lean on your knees instead of your toes.
Advanced: Do a decline push up and move your feet up to a bench, box or at home you can use a chair.
