The Incline Push Up is an upper body exercise that primarily targets the chest but also works the shoulders and triceps. This is a compound exercise which is well suited to beginner lifters.


  • Decline Dumbbell Press


  • Try resting against higher or lower objects to adjust the difficulty of the exercise



  • Place your hands on a bench, chair or table just wider than shoulder width apart and extend your legs out behind you.
  • Slowly bend at the elbows and lower your body until your face is just off the bench/chair/table. Press back up through your hands back up to the starting position. Keep your abs tensed and your back flat throughout.
