How to Do an Incline Push-Up

Learn how to do an incline push-up from certified personal trainer Max Tapper in this home chest workout for men video from Howcast.


Hi guys this is Max Tapper again for Howcast. Today I am going to show you how to do an incline push-up. Now incline push-ups just refers to the fact that you are going to do push-ups on an incline. It's going to take a little bit of the body weight away from you so it's something good for intermediate or beginner that's just getting into push-ups or even for someone that's well seasoned that just needs to burn out, this is how it looks. Body in the same position as it would have been if it was on the floor we're just bringing our chest down to the pad, and up. Now remember the same principles apply where the body is going to be; we are not going to sink; we are not going to have butt up in the air. Flat like a plank alright. Once again, now that is a incline push-up. There are many different reasons for doing incline push-up but one that I actually like is as a burnout after you've ready done as a bench press or dumbbell press you would jump on something like this which is a lot lower level requires a lot less strength at this point but will help you burn out. so now lets say you've done 12-15 reps on a bench press. Now come here and try to do as many as you possibly can. When you can't do any more stop. You will be completely wiped out. Incline bench press.
