Staggered push-up

The staggered push-up is a variation of the push-up exercise where your hand position is staggered, with one hand forward and one back. It targets the same muscles as a traditional push-up, including the chest, triceps, and shoulders, but is more difficult to the rear arm and core.


  1. Greater muscular challenge to the rear arm than standard push-ups
  2. Excellent build-up to single-arm push-up variations
  3. Serious core challenge
