FitnessU: Push yourself to better fitness

Pushups: That old school exercise we often take for granted. Pushups work your arms, back, shoulders, core, and yes, even your legs; you can do them anywhere; and you’re guaranteed a great workout. To get the maximum benefit, master proper alignment and learn the variations and modifications.
