How to Do Modified Push Ups on Knees

The modified push ups on knees should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the modified push ups on knees.
