Keep your thighs and feet together, and ensure that the hands are below your upper chest and shoulder width apart. Straighten the arms. The hips and spine should be in line. Bend at the elbows and shoulders until your breastbone comes to within a fist's width from the floor. Pause in this position and push up. Repeat.
