Push ups strengthen the shoulder girdle, core and triceps. Drawing to the midline is key to keeping the inner thighs engaged, elbows in, the core pulled up and in and the weight lifted off the wrists. Begin with a modified version on the knees. In the full version, keep in mind the lower back stays long, the shoulders stay in their sockets, and the head is kept in line with the spine. Be cautious of any wrist, neck or spine injures.
