Instructions for Incline Push-Ups - Martial Arts Strength Exercise
This page will teach you how to do "Incline Push-Ups". These push-ups should not be confused with more difficult Elevated or Decline Push-Ups.
Incline push-ups are an easier version of the traditional push-up because you lean against a wall or bench in order to perform this exercise. There is less weight to "push up" and thus this exercise is good for beginners until they can transition to a more advanced push-up. If you are lacking sufficient upper body strength, you can start high up on a wall. As you gain upper body strength, you can gradually move down to a bench or plyometric box and then eventually to the floor.
All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor to ensure the proper technique is being utilized and to avoid potential injuries. For additional exercises and push-up techniques (i.e. Triangle Push-Up), please visit the main Martial Arts Strength Training page.
