Knee Push-ups

Knee Push-ups are an underrated variation of the oh so classic exercise. Assume the standard push-up position then drop on your knees. Go down/up in a controlled manner. This altered version emphasizes less the core and really focuses on the shoulders, triceps and chest. Do 3-4 sets of 8-12 reps. As with regular push-ups you can change hand positions to work more the chest or triceps. You can also perform it using negative reps to increase the difficulty.

Pros:
  • Can be done anywhere.
  • Works large muscles in the upper-body.
Cons:
  • None
