#2 Decline Push-ups
The decline push-up is a more difficult version of the basic push-up. The level of difficulty is increased as you place your feet at a higher level than your hands. This exercise targets the upper chest region.
Step 1: Set yourself in a push-up position with your toes up on a chair. Your hands should be wider than the shoulders.
Step 2: Now lower your body downward as you inhale until the chest almost touches the ground.
Step 3: Next, breathe out and bring your upper body back to the starting position while squeezing your chest.
Important Tips: Do 3 sets of 17 reps each. The higher the elevation of your feet the more difficult the push-up and this helps in targeting the upper pecs. You can squeeze and tighten your butt to keep the lower back in position.
