You’ve probably already seen the gym guy or girl easily cruising through those push-up routines and tried to replicate the same yourself.

Use The Wall For A Wall Push-Up
This is much easier and requires you to stand as you do the push-up. As a result, it’s also great for beginners, especially if you found the regular push-up a little hard. This will improve your muscle strength as well as build endurance in the chest area while toning your shoulder and triceps.
Your Knee Can Help For A Knee Push-Up
For the knee push-up, you have to lie down on the floor on your stomach, but instead of doing it like a regular push-up, you can place the knee in such a way that all of your body weight comes down to the knees, and then you use this posture to start and do your push-up. Once you are comfortable with this, you can move on to the regular push-up.
Do A Decline Push-Up
This one may seem a little difficult, so it is best that you first try the other push-up techniques and then also try the regular push-up. Once you’re able to do those, you can try out the decline push-up. For this, you have to place your body in a regular way like a normal push-up, with the only difference being that your legs have to be placed in an elevated position. This will work on your upper chest as well as the front of your shoulders.
Push-Up has many benefits. It can help build lean muscle mass, burn calories, strengthen the bones, improve your cardiovascular fitness, strengthen your core muscles and improve metabolism. So don’t give up if you’re unable to do it initially. Practice gradually and find a style that works for you.
