Isometric Push-Ups - Core & Upper Body Strength Exercise

This page provides details on Isometric Push-Ups. This isometric exercise will work your core muscles as well as your chest, arms and back. Therefore, it is used for core workouts as well as upper body workouts. This exercise is also called a push-up with an isometric hold.

An isometric push-up is basically a combination of a plank and push-up. However, it is tougher than a traditional plank or push-up. At the bottom of the regular push-up "cycle", you should hold yourself barely above the floor for an extended period (i.e. 10+ seconds). After finishing this plank-like position, you will then push back up to your starting position. Repeat exercise for 10+ reps. This isometric exercise will help your punching power and grappling strength.
