EXHALE: Bend your elbows and lower chest to 90 degrees at the elbows.
INHALE: Push up so that your arms are straight, making sure your elbows aren’t completely locked. Try doing 2 sets of 10-12 repetitions.
If you can’t go to 90 degrees at the elbow, just go to a comfortable position until you can work up to 90 degrees.
