Push Ups with Feet Elevated

This is the same general movement as with a Push Up except your feet are elevated allowing greater range of motions and targeting the pectorals differently than the regular Push Up.


  1. Place your feet on a bench at least 18″ off the ground.
  2. Make sure the tops of your feet are flush against the bench.
  3. Place your hands on the floor slightly wider than shoulder width apart.
  4. With your hands directly under your shoulders, press up from the floor, keeping your back and neck in a straight line so you are looking forward during the entire exercise.
  5. Once your arms are fully extended pause and then with slow controlled movements lower yourself to the floor again.
