20 Push-Up Variations: Beginner to Advanced
Push-ups are awesome—no really. Just think about it: You can do them anywhere, they require no equipment, and almost everyone knows how to do them. Like the plank, a push-up has a lot of variation potential, which means you can target a whole range of muscles, including triceps, back, shoulders, abs, chest and more.
