Decline Pushup ‘N’ Climbers
These are tough, but they make pushups from the floor feel like a breeze! Even if you can only manage 2 or 3, elevating the feet can do wonders for your strength. This involves a lot of core strength too. Use the modifier that’s right for your level.
There are a few ways to modify this for those of you who are still working up to it OR want to make it harder.
1. From the floor: A regular pushup, followed by 2 climbers. 
2. From your knees: perform a modified pushup, then come to your toes (plank) for the 2 climbers. You can also come up to a table top position and pull your knees to your chest. 
3. ADVANCED: Try it with one leg elevated, on a higher surface or with hands on a medicine ball.
How To Do It

A. Rest your feet on the seat of a chair, and come up to the top of a pushup. Abs are tight, shoulders over your hands, eyes forward and glutes contracted.
B. Perform one pushup.
C. Transfer your weight into one foot as you draw one knee in towards your chest. Contract the core and keep your butt down. Eyes forward and weight in the palms of your hands. Switch sides. That’s ONE rep.
D. Repeat with the pushup.

Try to work up to 10-15 reps and repeat a few times (2-3)! It’s tough. but start with the right modification and work your way up! Even doing just a a few counts!
