Close Grip Push-up (on knees)

Close Grip Push Up (on knees)


Utility: Basic
Mechanics: Compound
Force: Push



Lie prone on floor with hands under shoulders or slightly narrower. Position body up off floor with extended arms and body straight.


Keeping body straight, lower body to floor by bending arms. Push body up until arms are extended. Repeat.


Both upper and lower body must be kept straight throughout movement. Forefeet can remain on floor as long as body is pivoting on knees. Also see close grip variation and wider grip push-ups on knees.


Resistance can be reduced by placing hands on horizontal bar or edge of elevated surface (knee to chest high).
