If the basic beginner’s version is not challenging you anymore, there are a number of ways to turbo charge the intensity of a push with small tweaks and additions.

WHY

If the basic beginner’s version is not challenging you anymore, there are a number of ways to turbo charge the intensity of a push with small tweaks and additions. By
progressing to the pike position you’re forced to resist more body weight as you extend your arms.

HOW

For pike push-ups, start off by positioning yourself as you would for a standard push-up. Position your hands shoulderwidth apart. While keeping your legs fairly straight, take a few
small steps to bring your feet towards your hands. From here, bend at the elbows to lower your upper body towards the floor. Lower yourself until your face is almost touching the floor, then
push back up.
