Fed up with push-ups? These 5 variations will revamp chest day

I love a push-up. It’s a functional compound bodyweight exercise mimicking natural day-to-day movement while strengthening your pecs, shoulders, and triceps and building a stronger core. But it’s a tough exercise to master and requires good form and a degree of existing core strength to maximize gains and prevent nasty injuries.

Some common mistakes include flared elbows, leading with your hips, limited range of motion and misplaced hands that add strain on your shoulders and back. This trick will help you master a push-up, but if you’ve nailed how to do a push-up already, it could be time to revamp your chest day workout with these clever alternatives.
