The band push-up is a progression of the popular bodyweight version of the exercise commonly used in military and tactical physical fitness tests. Adding the dynamic resistance of the band matches the strength curve of the push-up and helps build upper-body muscle and strength, emphasizing the chest, triceps, and shoulders, but also working the upper back and core.
