Standard Push-Up Exercise Hey my name is Antoine and today we’re going to do the two-handed push ups. Whenever I start with my clients, I like for them to start down to make sure that their form is correct. You want to start hands, armpit level and you want to bring your arms out width towards a 90-degree bend in the elbow. And from there it goes up and will arch at their back. That way I’m able to settle their hips down like -- placed. You do not want your hips stubbed or you do not want your hips just slouched down. What you’re going to do, keep your head up down and we bend the elbow and back up. What is it good for? Well the pectoral is major and minor as well as the serratus anterior and also with the whole core. Down and back up. Because as you come out more less to abs and on the way down stabilizing the lower back is working as well. The major muscle group major, pectoral major, minor and the triceps, shoulders as well to stabilize. For my motivation and determination, I guarantee that you will meet your biggest goal. My name is Antoine and that was set of push-ups and I’ll you at the gym.
