Targets shoulders, chest, biceps, and triceps
As with a traditional push-up, your own body weight will work as resistance, but in this case your partner can create more opposition by placing weight on your upper back. Too tough? Use a modified knee push-up instead, recommends Love.
Start by lying with your stomach on the floor, elbows bent at 90 degrees and palms on the floor in a lowered push-up position.
Have your partner stand over you and place hands on your upper back.
As you rise up into your push-up, your partner creates slight resistance, being sure to keep his core tight at the same time.
Complete reps until you feel fatigued, then switch.
