How to do Knee In Push-ups

Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Hard

Impact Level: Normal

Target Body Parts: abs, lower back, chest, shoulders


Start at the top of the push-up position with your hands on the floor, arms straight and underneath your shoulders. Step your feet back behind you and lift your knees. Engage your glutes, tense your legs and brace your core to keep your body rigid. Feet should be between hip and shoulder width. This is your start position.

As you lower down into a pushup, twist your hips and raise your left knee, bringing it across your torso toward your right hand. As you lower into the bottom part of the pushup your left hip should softly touch the ground. Push yourself back up, straightening your left leg back to the start position. Repeat with the right side.
