Push Ups (from stairs)

Use a staircase for this exercise. Stand on the floor facing the staircase. Lean forward and place your hands on a stair that is about at the height of your waist. Place your hands slightly wider than shoulder width apart (although you can place your hands closer or wider if you prefer). At this point, your arms should be straight and be at a 90 degree angle to your body. You should be slightly on your toes, your body should be leaning forward approximately 45 degrees, and your body should form a straight line from your shoulders to your ankles. This is the starting position. Your body should remain in a straight position throughout this exercise. Bend your arms, lowering your body toward the stair, until your body is nearly touching the stair. Breath in during this phase of the exercise. Now, press your body up and away from the stair, straightening your arms. Breath out during this phase of the exercise.
