Pushups are amazing for you since they are highly functional. As you may probably know, push ups target the chest muscles. At the same time, they engage the shoulders, triceps, core and a the lower body mildly. They help you develop a strong body, specifically the upper body.
A variation of the standard pushup is the decline pushup. It is a more advanced movement and a little bit more difficult. This angle involves the same motion as a standard pushup. Yet it is much more productive when aiming to target the upper chest.
Perform it in the same manner as the standard push up. However, the feet are elevated above your hands, angling down the body. Remember to keep the body straight, core tight and hips following a straight line.
Another great advantage is that decline push ups can be performed anywhere without the need of any equipment. You can switch the angle by positioning the feet at different angles higher than your head.
