Start: Attach a pair of straps to a chinup bar so the handles are about a foot or two off the floor. Grab the handles and assume a pushup position, keeping your body straight from head to ankles.

Movement: Now lower yourself a few inches so your elbows are out to your sides and bent slightly. Don't drop your hips. Hold for 15 seconds. That's 1 repetition.
