Now we're going to be doing the pushup exercise. It's an intermediate exercise and, and obviously it's going to be strengthening your upper body. It's going to be strengthening your triceps, your chest muscles, as well as your back and always using your powerhouse. So let's go ahead and begin. We're going to bring your head to your chest and roll off an imaginary wall.
Always lifting your powerhouse and reach those arms down and walk out and as little as you can into a pushup position. Good. Your hands want to be directly underneath your shoulders. Good. And in PyLadies, we graze the ribs with our elbows when we go down. Okay, so they're not going to be going out wide. Beautiful piece of steel. Stomach is supporting the spine, squeezing the glutes. There you go.
Squeezing, lengthening. Almost think of the spring of a reformer and it's stretching out the crown of your head as well. All right, go ahead and start bending the elbows and lower and one solid piece and pull up. Good. And bend the elbows and lower in one solid piece. Nice. And that's three going down. Polling up. Good. One more. Four don't cave in the chest. One more time.
Energy out the crown of your head, squeezing the glutes. Good. Lift up in your waist and walk back to your feet and roll up again as if there's a wall behind you. Keeping the weight a little more on the ball of your feet. Wonderful. And there we have the pushup.
