Push-Up Variations

Looking to spice up your push-ups? 
Whether you are doing modified push-ups on your knees or performing push-ups in a full push-up starting position, here are a few variations:

  •   Typical push-ups have your hands placed a little bit wider than your shoulders, with your elbows bending out to the sides. You can also turn your hands out slightly so that your fingers are just barely facing towards the outside of your mat. You can lift one leg up and do a one-legged push-up, and then switch sides. 
  •  Pilates push-ups have your hands placed as wide as your shoulders, with the elbows bending directly back so they are grazing the sides of your body. 
  •  Diamond push-ups are a great way to spice things up. Make the shape of a Diamond with your hands by letting your thumbs and pointer fingers touch. Then place them on the ground, and do push-ups with elbows bending out to the sides. 
  •  You can also add in jumps to the side, jumps forward and back, and jumps in and out in between repetitions to add more cardio.
