Pike Push-up

The Pike Push-up is a challenging upper-body exercise. Start in standard push-up position then bring your hands and  feet closer so your hips reach 90 degrees (your whole body will look like a triangle) . Lower your upper body, pause for 2 seconds then go back up. Do 3 series of 5/7 reps.

Pros:
  • Will blast your upper back, shoulders, triceps, upper arms, rib cage.
  • Can be done anywhere.
Cons:
  • Hard to maintain good form (you might be tempted to use your legs for assistance, especially when starting out).
