5. Push Ups
Lie down with your face down. Hold your body up at your arms’ length. Position your hands parallel to your shoulders. Lower your body, breathe in and push yourself back up as you breathe out. If you do not feel strong enough for this exercise, you can bend your legs at the knees and lift only the upper part of your body. Do not chase after quantity. Here the technique is far more important. It will take some effort and time to be able to do more than 50 push ups at a time. Start with 2-5 push ups and gradually increase repetitions. This exercise involves most major muscles and is good for those who want to tone up their chest, triceps and shoulders.
