Power Up With Push-Ups

How many can you do in the kitchen?

Push-ups are a classic exercise for toning your arms, chest and shoulders. But maybe you don't have the upper body strength to perform them from a plank position on the floor? AARP Wellness Ambassador Denise Austin has a modification for you that could be more fun, because it includes a challenge, too! Got a package of popcorn in the kitchen? See how many modified push-ups you can do while making popcorn.
