Doing push ups with your feet elevated is more challenging than regular push ups. To perform this you simply put your feet on a step, bench or chair. This engages your deltoids more. As your prop gets taller, the exercise gets more challenging. Eventually you may be able to work up to a handstand push up.


  • In a pushup position, hands on the floor and with your feet elevated on a box, bench or chair.
  • Keep your head, neck, and body aligned in a straight line.
  • Lower yourself as far as you can by bending your arms.
  • Push back up to the top.
