Add intensity to traditional pushups by moving. As its name suggests, the walking pushup means that you walk your hands from one side to the other using a stationary object to mark your position. This exercise engages the core and stability muscles.

How It’s Done

Begin in a pushup position, on the knees or toes.

  1. Perform a pushup, lowering until the elbows are at 90-degree angles and, as you press upward, walk the left hand to the left and the right hand the stationary object.
  2. Perform another pushup, this time walking the hands to the right so that the left hand is once again on the stationary object.
  3. Continue pushups, alternating walking the hands to either side for a total of 10-12 reps (1 rep includes walking to the right and left).

Tips & Warnings

No slouching. Keep that back straight.
