Push Ups

Exercise Mat Chest Shoulder: Front Triceps

This exercise is designed to work the chest, triceps, and shoulder muscles. It is great for home work outs and at the gym.


  1. Start by lying face down on the mat. Hands should be shoulder width apart under the shoulders and toes tucked under.

  2. Exhale and push up with your hands while engaging your abdominal muscles. Make sure your arms are straight but that your elbows aren't completely locked. Bend your elbows and lower your chest until your elbows are at 90 degrees. Push back up until your arms are almost straight. This completes one rep.

  3. Suggested reps: Try 2 sets of 10-12 reps.
