5. Feet-elevated pushup
Often called a “decline” pushup, the feet-elevated pushup intensifies the old-school pushup by shifting more of your body weight to your chest and arms. That makes it a perfect way to build your triceps strength, as well as your anterior deltoids, your pecs, and your core (because you’ll need to prevent your hips from sagging).
This exercise is simple: Just do it exactly as you would a standard pushup, but elevate your feet on a sturdy box or bench. To make it even more difficult, put your feet on a slightly unstable surface, like a BOSU ball.
