How to Do Kneeling Incline Push-Ups
- Assume the starting position on your knees, with your hands on an elevation (such as a step-board), slightly wider than shoulder width apart.
- Try to form a straight line from head to knee, and brace your abdomen slightly.
- Lower yourself as deep as you can, while inhaling.
- Reverse the motion when you’ve touched the board, and push yourself up to straight arms again while exhaling.
- Repeat for reps.
Incline push-ups on your knees is an easier variant of push-ups, which you can use to build up your strength before you move on to more advanced variants. Suitable next steps after this exercise are kneeling push-ups on flat ground, or incline push-ups standing on your feet.
