The Push Up

The push up is a great way to strengthen your chest and tricep muscles and help protect the shoulder joint. However, If you find you struggle to complete a push-up from the ground, have a go at an incline push up from your kitchen bench or table. It will reduce the load put on the body whilst still challenging your strength. Start with outstretched arms on a bench or table, slowly lower yourself down towards whilst maintaining a straight plank from head to toe, and push back up in one smooth movement. Start off with 2-3 sets of 6-8 reps depending on abilities and go from there!
