Put your dumbbells off to the side and assume a regular pushup position with arms about shoulder-width apart. Slowly lower yourself from the up position until you are halfway to the floor. Hold this position for two seconds, then lower yourself to just above the floor, hold for two seconds, then straighten your arms to press yourself forcefully all the way up. Do as many repetitions as you can with good form. Five to 10 reps is a good place to start.
