Body Part: Chest, Shoulders, Anterior Deltoids, Triceps
Step 1: Assume a push up position with the body in a straight line from head to heel, feet hip to shoulder width, and hands 1.5-2x shoulder width elevated on a bench. Brace the core and tighten the glutes. Press away from the floor to prevent the shoulder blades from winging.
Step 2: Lower the chest toward the bench through a maximum range of motion until the chest is approximately a few inches off the floor or shoulders have reached elbow depth.
Step 3: Reverse the pattern and return to starting position.
Step 4: Repeat. Maintain posture throughout. Keep the shoulders from elevating or rounding. Do not let the back round or arch or the hips sag or pike. Avoid letting the head jut forward.
