The push up is the premier bodyweight exercise for upper body strength (along with the bodyweight row and chin up). In the video below you will see osteopath Heath Williams demonstrating a range of push up variations that one could look to adopt into their regular training routine. One could look to incorporate each variation within a set as I have demonstrated or you could look to perform a set of push ups of each variation across 5-10 sets for a full upper body push program.
