There are several exercises that everyone can benefit from — pushups, lunges, squats and crunches. All of these require no equipment except our own body weight, so there’s no excuse for not doing them.
I’m a bit of a stickler when it comes to having proper form when working out, for a few reasons. First, if you’re going to work up a sweat, you might as well make it worth your while. Without proper form, you aren’t going to get the results you’re looking for. Second, without good form, you’re more likely to injure yourself.
In this video, I demonstrate how to do a pushup, along with a couple of modifications. Kevin Reisick, owner of Arch Fitness in Bethalto, Ill., is providing some coaching.
