10 Great Press Up Variations for Strength, Power and Muscle

The Press Up is a timeless and classic exercise, building strength, muscle and power. These 10 variations will test you in many different ways.


  • Assume a Push Up position with your body straight, supported by your extended arms. Your hands should be outside of shoulder width. This will be your starting position.
  • Initiate the movement by flexing the elbows and leaning to one side, lowering your torso to the ground.
  • Return to the starting position by extending your elbows, pushing yourself back to center.
  • On the next repetition lower yourself to the other side, again returning to the starting position after the rep is complete. Continue alternating until the set is finished.
