Think of this exercise as a push-up that's mostly for your shoulders instead of your chest. It forces the shoulders to work hard to drive your body back using a natural arc and push angle.

The Push-Back Push-Up

  • Level 1: Drop down, explode straight back, and return to push-up position.
  • Level 2: Same basic movement, but put your feet up on a braced bench. Your abs will be screaming.
