Overview

The pike pushup is an advanced of the pushup that targets the chest, shoulders, and triceps. To do a pike pushup, start in a high plank position with your feet together and your hands shoulder-width apart. Then, bend your knees and bring your feet towards your hands until your shins are parallel to the floor. Keeping your core engaged, extend your legs back and pike your hips up so that your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your heels. Bend your elbows and lower your body until your chest almost touches the floor, then push back up to the starting position. Pike pushups are a challenging exercise, but they can help you build strength and muscle mass in your chest, shoulders, and triceps.
