Making it harder- elevating the feet

Once you get used to the push up, you can also begin to increase the difficulty by elevating the feet above the floor.

Use phone books, boxes, chairs, tables, counter tops, even walls to to raise the feet higher than your hands. This will change the amount of weight you are pushing, and the angle that the muscles are working in as well.

Next, add the handles for even harder elevated push ups.
