Over all push-ups are the most efficient exercise you can do for total body fitness, and once you get the hang of it, they are not hard to do!Always be sure to keep your ab muscles firm while your arms are moving to protect your lower back and always lift slowly and with control so your elbows never snap or "lock". There are several variations of the push-up, and each is just as good as the other for working your arms. Just make sure you are QuickFire Challenging yourself to YOUR limits, EVERY day, THROUGHOUT Your day. The traditional push-up places your whole body off the floor and uses your entire body weight.The modified push-up uses the weight of your upper body as resistance and places you with knees bent and on the floor.

Most of these can be done while watching TV or listening to the radio, at the office (use your desk), in the bathroom!!!! Track in Your Fitness Tracker: Strength: UpperBody: PushUps!
