Push-Up and Rotate

This 1 Push-Up Variation Is the Ultimate Move to Sculpt Your Arms and Abs

While regular push-ups with your legs straight are challenging enough, if you really want to get stronger and build muscle in your upper back, arms, and core, this variation is a must do. Grab a pair of medium-weight dumbbells and add this push-up to your routine.

  • Begin balancing in plank position, shoulders stacked over the wrists, with a dumbbell on the floor in each hand.
  • Lower your body toward the floor and then push through your arms, returning to plank.
  • Holding the dumbbell, twist to the left, reaching your left arm to the ceiling without letting your pelvis rise or lower.
  • Return to plank position, bringing the dumbbell back to the floor, and perform another push-up. When returning to plank, twist to the right and reach your right arm to the ceiling.
  • Return back to plank position, returning the dumbbell to the floor. This completes one rep.
