8 Push-Up Variations to Add to Your Routine

The push-up is one of the most effective strength training exercises, but it gets a bit monotonous at times.

You go up, you go down, and you repeat the sequence. Even though it produces results, it's not all that flashy.

Instead of falling victim to the monotony, try adding a few variations to your routine. You'll experience the same great benefits, along with a few more.

Note: Before you attempt the intermediate, advanced and extreme variations, be sure to master the traditional push-up.
