Deep Press Up
Aim to use two step boxes, which you should place your hands onto, keeping your fingers pointing forward, so that you can increase the depth of your push up by at least 2 inches.
Lower down under control, holding in the final lowered phase for 1 - 2 seconds prior to returning back up to your starting position.
You may wish to make the exercise harder by performing with your feet raised on another step box, however always take care that any raised platform you use is secure, with your hands or feet firmly on them.
Stretch and Warm Up before you commence any exercise and aim to finish with some good stretching to let your body and mind recover.
