4 types of push-ups

For those who train at home without using a lot of material, push-ups are one of the main and most effective exercises that can be used to develop the upper body area.

Discover four variations of push-ups to diversify your training.

Decline Push-ups

To do decline push-ups we need a bench or some support that provides incline.

Placing your feet or shins on the bench, perform the push-up movement as shown in the image.

This movement works the lower chest area more compared to normal push-ups.

Incline Push-ups

Just like incline push-ups, in the case of incline push-ups we need some support to provide height to the movement.

Placing your hands on a bench or similar support, the movement is performed with some inclination, focusing more on the upper chest area.

Wide Push-ups

Wide push-ups are a variant of push-ups in which the main difference is the opening of the arms.

In this type of exercise, we open our arms slightly more, which will work the chest more intensely than in normal push-ups.

This is the hardest of the 4 exercises!

Short Pushups

To finish, in short push-ups we bring our hands closer to the ground and do an exercise more aimed at the arms, working the triceps more intensely.
