Women and men face different challenges when performing push-ups. But there are ways to get around those and perfect your technique.
Get into a high plank position. Place your hands firmly on the ground, directly under shoulders.
Lower your body as you inhale until your chest almost touches the floor. Keep your back flat and eyes focused about three feet in front of you to keep a neutral neck.
Exhale and press your upper body back up to the starting position while squeezing your chest.
After a brief pause back at high plank position begin to lower yourself again for as many repetitions as needed.
If you need a less intense variation you can either bend your legs at the knees or perform against the wall instead of the floor.
