Pushups are a fantastic upper body workout! After 8 years in the Army I developed a love/hate relationship with the pushup. It made me appreciate how a challenging workout can take place anywhere with no equipment, and made me realize there is really no room for excuses. All you need is your own body.
Pushups are safe throughout pregnancy. For new moms, you can even put your baby underneath and give them kisses on the forehead with each repetition. I promise they will love it!
