Isometric Wipers

The typewriter push-up is an advanced push-up variation where the hands are extra wide and you lower toward each hand in alternating reps. It is more challenging to each working arm than traditional push-ups and also stretches and challenges the chest.


  1. Far more challenging than normal push-ups
  2. Excellent build-up to single-arm push-ups
  3. Increased challenge to triceps and chest

Isometric Wipers muscle diagram
  1. Assume a push-up position, supporting your weight on your hands and toes while keeping your body straight. Your hands should be just outside of shoulder width. This will be your starting position.
  2. Begin by shifting your body weight as far to one side as possible, allowing the elbow on that side to flex as you lower your body.
  3. Reverse the motion by extending the flexed arm, pushing yourself up and then dropping to the other side.
  4. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
