Decline Push Ups

How to do Decline Push Ups

1. Place your hand flat on the floor slightly wider than shoulder width apart

2. Fully extend your legs out onto a stable elevated surface (this can be a chair, bench, or step) so that only your toes and/or balls of your feet touch the surface

3. Keeping your back nice and straight, brace your core and carefully lower your chest towards the floor by bending your elbows, keeping them close to your sides as you do so

4. When your chest gets to about 1 inch from the floor, hold the position briefly before pushing yourself back up to the starting position, ensuring your back remains straight throughout the entire motion
