Strength Training Without Weights
For the regular push up, you’ll need to focus on using the chest. Even though this works the shoulders and arms, you don’t need to think about using those muscles because you’re body will incorporate them naturally. Correct form is the key here or else you’re wasting your time and energy. While in the push up position, arms need to start locked out, shoulder-width a part, and your toes should be the only part of your foot on the ground making your body parallel with the ground. While lowering yourself down, your arms should end in a 90 degree angle with your nose almost touching (if not actually touching) the ground.
