Have you done your pushups today?

The pushup is a classic exercise that uses your body weight for resistance. Here's how to do it: 1. Lie facedown on the floor with your elbows bent and your palms next to your shoulders. 2. Keeping your back straight, push up with your arms until your arms are extended. 3. Lower your body until your chin touches the floor.
