Decline Push Up Instructions
1. Start in a plank position, with your wrists under your shoulders and your feet hip-width apart, and place your feet on top of a step.
2. Bend your elbows and lower your chest until it’s just above the floor.
3. Push back to the starting position, and repeat until the set is complete.
Proper Form And Breathing Pattern
Keep your body in a straight line, with your head in line with your torso and your torso in line with your hips. Engage your core and breathe in as you slowly bend your elbows and lower your chest to the floor. Exhale as you straighten your arms and push back to the starting position.
