Most PUSH exercises focus primarily on your pectorals, shoulders, and triceps. But one of the many great things about doing them with only your bodyweight is that they work so many more muscles as well. For example, unlike bench pressing, doing Push Ups will strengthen your abs and the rest of your core. In fact, once you progress to the more intense types of Push Ups, like Semi-Planche or One-Arm Push Ups, you won’t need to work your core separately at all. Unlike the other three sections, we’ll lead this PUSH chapter with an exercise you already know—the Classic Push Up. You’ll notice the Push Up description is long, but this is not your daddy’s Push Up. And once you understand the many variations, particularly altering your leverage, you’ll see that there’s almost countless ways to do a Push Up.  For those who don’t think they can ever do a single good Push Up, I’ll show you how to easily work into it.

Rocking Chairs

pectorals, triceps, deltoids, core

Start in the beginning position of a Classic Push Up, your body in a perfect line,  your arms straight and your hands directly beneath your shoulders upon flor. Now push your body slowly forward six to ten inches with your toes, keeping your arms straight. Return slowly back to the starting position.

Ready to kick it up a notch? Again, start in the beginning position of a classic push up, but lower your body to within five inches of the floor, as though you’re indeed doing a Push Up. Once you’re in the bottom position, move your body forward, paraller to the floor, six to ten inches with your toes. See how long you can do this for. Or you can complete a Push Up after each rep.

Bear Walk

shoulders, pectorals, triceps, traps, core

Simply place your hands on the ground a few feet in front of your toes, and start crawling on your hands and feet. Have some fun. This is a good exercise for a beginner, because it uses so many muscles at once. You’ll start to feel it after a while. It’s also a great exercise to do at the end of a push workout, to really finish off your entire upper body.
