Pike Pushups

Do you know those exercises that make you look a bit weird in the gym?

Well, in our own experience, those are just the exercises that turn out to be REALLY effective.

This particular one utilizes a different angle, created by raising the hips and tip-toeing a bit.

It tremendously activates the clavicular portion of the pectoralis major and also gives a good deal of tension to the shoulders.

  1. 1
    Get into a push-up position – Hands placed wider than shoulder width, feet at shoulder width on toes
  2. 2
    Take a step in with your toes to let the hips go up a bit
  3. 3
    Look down to your chest and go down, trying to touch the ground with your head
  4. 4
    Once the head is an inch off of the ground, push up
  5. 5
    Note that there is no movement in the hips as they remain static
