Overview

The plate-weighted push-up is a simple way to make a classic bodyweight exercise more difficult. It targets all the same muscles as the push-up: chest, triceps, shoulders, upper back, and core. You can balance a plate on your upper back yourself, but it's easier and safer to have someone else put it there. If you stack a few plates up, be sure to have a spotter close at hand.
