      The push-up begins by walking yourself back into a plank with your arms extended, fingers straight forward and palms under your shoulder blades. The lower half of your body will have the heels and knees together as you
      squeeze your butt and abs to form a solid middle. Wrists, elbows and shoulders should be nicely stacked over each other before beginning the descent. Strongly rotate your palms outward and begin to drop. Remember to keep the elbows from flaring out by keeping the elbow stacked over the wrist as vertical as possible. At first control the descent downwards for increasing amounts of time, anywhere from 2-5 seconds. Once you’re able to drive up, drive up as strongly as you can without losing the tension in your butt or abs.
