As a father of 2 kids, I don't have much time for exercise. Thus, I love efficient exercises that work multiple areas at the same time. Push-ups are such an exercise. Although traditionally thought of as a chest (pec) exercise, they also work the back, shoulders, abdominals, arms, and sometimes the legs. This video is just a small sampling of a push-up progression. There are many more variations that can be performed, but these are some of the most useful. One I forgot to include is the wide stance push up, which is performed with the hands very far apart and isolates the pecs more than other variations.

Enjoy and stay active!
