Minue Moves with Tina Tang: Pushups
Trainer Tina Tang shows you how to do the perfect pushup.
Have a minute? You have time to work out. We asked personal trainer, Tina Tang, how to do the perfect push ups. Start in the plank position. Your back should form a straight line with your heels, almost like a tabletop. Your arms should be directly under your shoulders, with your hands turned slightly to the sides. Make sure you squeeze your inner thighs together; this fires your core automatically. Keep your elbows tucked in so that your arms form a forty-five degree angle. Slowly drop your chest down to the floor, keeping your thighs squeezed the whole time, and push yourself back up.
