1. The Diamond Push-Up
This is one of four body weight moves to build your chest. The diamond push-up. Aesthetically deceptive, hard to execute. Place your index finger and thumb on each hand close together and descend into a push-up. Return to and focus on squeezing at the top. 5 to 10 reps of this bad boy and you should feel the burn.
2. The Archer Push-Up
Move two of four. The archer push-up is an intense push-up that asymmetrically loads the weight of your body into one arm. A great body weight move to build and tone your chest while simultaneously crushing your core and triceps.
3. The Wide Grip Push-Up
Move three of four. The wide grip push-up compromises the amount of power you can put into a push-up and forces you to focus on form. It’s a great way to build stability, a strong core, and a well rounded chest so that it doesn’t fall flat on the sides.
4. The Elevated Push-Up
Add the this elevated push-up into your routine to put a maximal amount of body weight into your push-up. You feel it before you even start your first rep. Chest, shoulders, triceps will all get crushed in this one. A you descend, try not to let your back arch. Keep a strong core from top to bottom. If you want an added core challenge, see how long you can hold that push-up at the top.
