Pushups w/ Coach Jorge

Push-ups are a great way to work out your arms, your chest, your back, your abs, and your legs. Though many of us are familiar with the classic exercise, a lot of us do it wrong. Start with your hands shoulder-width apart and your body lifted in a high plank. Then, bend your arms so that your elbows are at a 45-degree angle from your body. (That means they aren't totally parallel to your body, and they aren't splayed all the way out either—they're somewhere in between.) Make sure to engage your core and glutes so that your body stays in a straight line as you push up and down.
