Starter Military Push Up

Women tend to do these modified on our knees, yet with practice, you can gradually lower the position of your arms until you are entirely on the floor. This is about as high as you want to start (if you have a box and mattress on a platform bed, this is the height). A chair is not optimal, just handy, since most seats are not wide enough to accommodate the width your hands – which should be at least as wide as your shoulders.
