Advanced Push-Ups

1. T Push-Up with Leg Raise

Targets shoulders, chest, arms, abs, obliques, butt, thighs

Begin in full push-up position with legs extended, abs engaged and hips lifted. Raise right arm toward ceiling, rotating entire body to the right; at the same time, lift right leg. Hold for 3 counts, return to floor, then do a full push-up. Repeat on the opposite side. Do 10 reps.

2. Push-Up with Leg Lift

Targets shoulders, chest, arms, abs, butt, thighs

Begin in a full push-up position -- wrists below shoulders, legs extended, toes tucked under, abs engaged. Lift right leg off the floor and bend elbows, lowering chest toward floor. Straighten arms and repeat, keeping leg lifted. Do 10 reps; switch legs and repeat

3. Plyo Push-Up

Targets shoulders, chest, arms, abs, butt

Begin in full push-up position with hands directly under your shoulders, legs extended, abs engaged. Do a push-up, bending elbows to 90 degrees. As you push back up to start, explosively lift both hands off the floor. Do 10 reps.

Modified Push Ups -As I read your blog post, I couldn┐t help but think of the Push-Up Bench as the most effective way for people who struggle with push ups , to be able to do them correctly (with full range of motion). Most modified push-ups make them easier but only allow one or two variations. The Push Up Bench has 11 different levels to work through on the way to a full push-up.
