Decline Push-Up Guide

Main Muscle: Chest

  1. Lie on the floor face down and place your hands about 36 inches apart while holding your torso up at arms length. Move your feet up to a box or bench. This will be your starting position.
  2. Next, lower yourself downward until your chest almost touches the floor as you inhale.
  3. Now breathe out and press your upper body back up to the starting position while squeezing your chest.
  4. After a brief pause at the top contracted position, you can begin to lower yourself downward again for as many repetitions as needed.

Jun 18, 2013 8:43 PM: Somehow find these are easier to do than regular pushups :0 maybe since it doesn't feel like attacking the core as much... great chest/shoulder workout though :D
