There are many different variations of push-ups. You have the regular push-up, incline push-ups, decline push-ups, and even wall push-ups. You even have different variations on the push-ups! For the regular push-ups you can do them on your knees or your feet. I recommend doing as many as possible – with proper form – on your feet and then switch to your knees to finish. Here I wanted to explain how to do an incline push-ups which you will see in many of our workout plans.
Chest Exercise: Incline Push-Ups
How to perform incline push-ups:
- Stand in front of a sturdy platform (a bench that won’t move)
- Place your hands a little wider than shoulder width on the edge of the platform
- Keeping your body straight (don’t let your bottom sag or stick up), lower your chest to the platform
- Return to the starting position (arms straight) in a controlled manner
