Pushups are a barebones muscle-building exercise that’s incorporated in nearly every major athlete’s training program because they work. Simple as that.

They target your arms, chest, and core, serving as one of the most efficient bodyweight movements you can do. Better yet, you can crank them out anywhere, anytime and easily up the intensity by changing the elevation, adding equipment, moving your hand and feet positioning, even adding instability. Actually, it’s best you add some variety; exercise tedium is as bad for your motivation as it is for your muscles. 

So we reached out to Anthony J. Yeung C.S.C.S. and strength coach at PUSH Private Fitness and came up with 15 variations to help diversify the moves in your arsenal.

Ready to hit some muscles you forgot you had and your average pushup couldn’t dream of touching?
