Bent Knee Push Ups

This is an essential exercise for beginners. Some people can´t do a single push up. It´s not a myth, I´ve trained some. This is an easy variation to  gain strength and progress to the full Push Up if you add it to your routine.

This exercise works: pectoralis majordeltoidstriceps, and rectus abdominis.

On the floor on your knees supported by your hands in front of you.

Slowly bend your elbows to where your chest touches or barely touches, the ground.

Keeping the torso rigid and head aligned with your spine, inhale down, exhale up!

I love your descriptions. They work together with the image to make it easier. I did this today. Managed to do five repetitions before stopping. I have troubled knees so couldn’t push it further.

I use a wall sometimes or the stairs. If getting on the floor is too difficult for me.

Sadly, I’m already very certain that some people can’t do a single push up. I don’t think I want to talk about why I know this, though. 🙂
