Variations of Push-Ups
12 Ways to Push Your Push-Ups
Down Dog Push-Up
Another yogic push-up variation to really target your lats, upper back, and abs! As a bonus, you also get a nice stretch for your calves.
- Begin in a Downward Dog but on your elbows instead of your hands. Exhale, and press hands into the mat to straighten your elbows. Pull your navel up toward your spine to move the pelvis up and back, coming into a Down Dog.
- Inhale and lower your elbows gently back to the mat, to complete one rep.
