Counter Push-Ups, The Push-Up for Beginners

The standard push-up works your entire body (chest, shoulders, triceps, legs, abs, lower back..). However, the standard push-up can be tough for beginners. So in order to strengthen your upper body to prepare for standard push-ups we should start with counter push-ups, then eventually knee push-ups, then finally the standard!

Here is how you do counter push-ups:

Position A:  Palms on the ledge-shoulder width part, feet together and knees slightly bent.

Position B: lower your upper body to within a few inches of the counter, or in the case of the photo, a large rock at Central Park.

Do two sets of 25 reps!

These can be done at home, at work, at the gym, or virtually anywhere that you can find a counter... or rock.
