Modified Pushup for Women
- Get down on all fours and place your hands on the floor so that they're slightly wider than and in line with your shoulders. Instead of performing the exercise with your legs straight, bend your knees and cross your ankles behind you.
- Lower your body until your chest nearly touches the floor. Pause at the bottom, and then push yourself back to the starting position as quickly as possible. If your hips sag at any point during the exercise, your form has broken down. When this happens, consider that your last repetition and end the set.
