Arm exercise no. 1: The perfect pushupKirsch wants you to forget you ever learned a push-up in high school gym class and relearn this go-to move with his technique.
Do 15 to 20 repetitions each, two to three times minimum. If you need to, start with modified pushups (off your knees) and work your way up to full plank.
1. Start out in front of a mirror so you can check you alignment. Your hands should be directly under your shoulders and lined up with your chest. Make sure your core is tight and your shoulders and neck are relaxed.
2. Use your triceps to help execute the perfect pushup, so make sure you feel them engage when you are lowering and lifting back up. Your body from shoulder to foot should be tight (stiff) and even (your body straight and parallel to the floor).
