Do not stretch! Don’t stretch before exercising. Contrary to popular belief, studies have shown that this isn’t helpful and won’t allow you to perform any better. If anything, stretching before exercising will make you worse off: it is a great way to pull or strain a muscle and hurt yourself!
Hydrate. Drink lots of water ahead you workout. Your body will need the water to help your muscles work and also to aid you sweat. If you are dehydrated before you start, just think about how you will feel afterward!
Position your feet about hip-width apart and squat to the floor, placing your hands on the floor in front of you. Now jump the feet out and come to a pushup position, on the hands and toes with the body in a straight line. Then, return to start position, by jumping the feet back.
Stand straight and part your feet to the width of your shoulders and put your hands stretched forward for extra balance. Bend your knees and lower yourself. The knees need to be at 90 degrees angle, while the thighs need to be parallel to the floor. Keep your back straight, without letting your knees extend over your toes. Get back to the starting position
Start in a traditional push up starting position, your feet a couple of inches apart and your arms directly under your shoulders. Keep your abs tight and drop your body straight down bending just your arms. Go back to the starting position. Repeat.
Lie flat on your back with your knees slightly bent and legs fixed. Lock your hands together behind your head. Breathe out while elevating your upper body until it creates a V-shape with your thighs. Wait for a second, then lower your upper body back down, inhaling. This is one rep.
