Step 1: Position your hands shoulder-width apart on a secured bench
Step 2: Slide your butt off the front of the bench with your legs extended out in front of you.
Step 3: Straighten your arms, keeping a little bend in your elbows to keep tension on your triceps and off your elbow joints.
Step 4: Slowly bend your elbows to lower your body toward the floor until your elbows are at about a 90-degree angle. Be sure to keep your back close to the bench.
Step 5: Once you reach the bottom of the movement, press down into the bench to straighten your elbows, returning to the starting position. This completes one rep.
Step 6: Keep your shoulders down as you lower and raise your body. You can bend your legs to modify this exercise.
Step 7: Complete 3-4 sets hitting around 10 or 12 reps
