1. Propped up Push-Ups

Propped up push-ups are among my favorite exercises to tone upper body areas. They're easier than traditional push-ups, yet you can get an even better workout, especially for your chest and back, your shoulders, your abs, and your triceps. Get down on all fours, keeping your knees under your hips and your back straight and flat. You'll need a medicine or exercise ball, although I've seen people use low chairs and benches as well. Press your palms into the ball (or whatever you choose), which should be located right below your chest. Once you're steady, extend your legs straight out behind you and balance yourself on the tips of your toes. Keep your feet a little more than shoulder width apart, maybe two feet. Follow through with a traditional push-up motion by bending your elbows, so your chest drops down to the ball, then push up again. Try doing this 8 times to start.
