Find a comfortable push-up position, either on the knees or toes. Start with hands under shoulders and elbows at sides as you lower. To focus on the eccentric phase, SLOWLY lower the body for 3-5 seconds. Keep shoulders down by reaching elbows toward the hips. When chest reaches the floor, move the hands into a wide position to do the push-up at regular pace. Return hands to narrow for the next rep.
