Default Pushups Variations that aren't ridiculously hard?

Right now I just do regular ones, spidermans, triangle pushups, and uchi matas.

put your knees on a table and stick your butt in the air, hands on the ground so your body is like a triangle.. now do pushups. These are called pikes.. they are more deltoid orienetd.

You can get good at 1-arm pushups by using your non-working hand's fingertips as a helper guide. Slowly put that guide away and away from your body as you progress.

Take old telephones or dumbells and do pushups like that. this strengthens the forearms i think.

fingertip pushups.

Use split apart chairs and raise your feet higher than the chairs and go deeper for pushups. this will hit your sternum musculature.

Start putting small weights on your back for the regulars.

mix up the time under tension. go 5-1-5. other times go as fast as possible.

do 1. rest. do 2. rest. do 3. rest. do 4. rest. go up. go down.


hit the dips too.

have never had a shoulder injury thanks to pushups

Feet elevated, can also add weight by wearing a vest or putting a plate on your back.

Any of the variations above are good, although like with anything, you'll probably be shaky the first couple of times. You could also learn to do them on rings/TRX/any suspension trainer device. They're pretty tough but teach you to stabilize your WHOLE body very well.

I think weighted, ring, and pike/handstand push-ups are good enough to get you by years of training in terms of push-up variations though.

Side-step push-ups plus alternating pump-ups...

What yo udo is do a regular push up, when while in the plank position step to the side with your foot then you arm, get back into a regular push-up position, do a regular push up then push as hard as you can up so you come off the floor, then side-step back the other way where you started, do a regular push up, come back, do a pump-up and keep alternating.

Hard to explain.
