Use different styles of pushups to add variety to your resistance program

The pushup is a great upper body and core exercise, but doing it the old-fashioned way can get old fast. Here are 4 ways to spice up your pushups

Pushups can be done anywhere, don’t require any equipment and are easy to learn how to do.

But it can get a little boring sometimes doing the same old thing. So here are some variations to the traditional pushup.

In the video below I’ll cover how to do a pushup correctly, including how to modify the pushup if you can’t do the basic version on your hands and toes.

I’ll also show you how to do 4 new pushups:

  • Tthe T-pushup, which develops shoulder stability along with spinal and hip mobility
  • The staggered stance pushup
  • Tthe medicine ball pushup
  • The plank to pushup

When trying these variations for the first time, focus on doing a few repetitions with good form. Develop good technique first, then work on increasing the number of repetitions you can do.
