Push Up Exercise for Bone Health

Step 1

Lie on your stomach on the floor, placing your hands underneath  your shoulders.

Step 2

Flex your body so that your body is stiff and completely suspended between your hands and toes.

Step 3

Slowly press your hands down, straightening your arms and lifting your body off the ground until your arms are straight.

Step 4

Slowly bend your arms to lower your  body to the starting position to complete one repetition.  Repeat 9 more times to complete one set of 10 repetitions.

Tip:  If this style of push up is too challenging, try a Knee Push Up or Wall Push Up.

You’ve completed this one!  Great job!
