If you've never tried a push-up, now is the time to add it to your workout routine. If you're comfortable with push-ups, maybe it's time to try a new variation. Mark Vohsman with Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping shows us how:

The push up can be varied to hit many different parts of the upper body. You can perform a push up from your knees, on your toes or elevate your feet.

For a basic push up place the hands a little over shoulder width apart. Hold your body in a firm straight position. Do not let the hips bounce up and down. Lower yourself as low as you can or at least get the chest to drop below the elbows. This will work the chest, shoulders, back and arms.

To focus more on the shoulders, go to a pike position, raising your hips in the air. To shape the arms, bring the hands to a narrow position and the body to the standard push up position.
