The pushup is a classic exercise that uses your body weight for resistance. Here's how to do it: 1. Lie face down on the floor with your elbows bent and your palms next to your shoulders. 2. Keeping your back straight, push up with your arms until your arms are extended. 3. Lower your body until your chest is about 2 inches from touching the floor. 4. Push your body upward, returning to the starting position. Keep your back straight and your abdominal muscles tight throughout the exercise.
