Feet-elevated push-up

The feet-elevated push-up is a variation on the push-up, a bodyweight standard. The feet are elevated so that your body is aligned at an angle to the floor rather than parallel. This makes it more difficult than push-ups on the floor, but also puts more emphasis on the shoulder muscles. It is often used as a bodyweight substitute for incline presses, or as a burnout movement for a chest or shoulder workout.

Benefits

  1. Works the upper chest and front shoulders more than the regular push-up
  2. Harder than regular push-ups
  3. You can make it harder still by progressively elevating your feet higher over time
