The push-up. So simple, yet so effective at developing solid pushing strength. What’s more, there are dozens of variations to choose from. Do them all, then go find more or make some up. Vary your hand placement, depth, and load. Try clapping push-ups, not just in front, but try to clap behind your back. Do them on rings two inches off the ground. Try out a variety of timed intervals and repetition formats. Push-ups, like pull-ups and squatting, should be part of your every day training. There’s no wrong way to do them, unless you just don’t do them.
