If you want to learn how to do body weight shoulder exercises, the push-up is a simple classic that you probably already know. While push ups need little explanation, it is important to remember to keep your abs and buttocks tight, forming your body in a straight line to protect your back. Additionally, you arms should fall directly below your shoulders and your head should remain relaxed as you look to the floor. You can modify your push-ups by doing them against a wall, dropping to your knees or even lifting your hands up onto kettlebells or medicine balls if you are looking for a challenge.
