How To Do An Incline Push-Up With Rotation

The Incline Push-Up With Rotation Is An Upper Body Strength and Core Stabilization Exercise


  • Begin in a high plank position with feet hip-width apart and arms extended.
  • Place hands on a flat bench or other elevated platform, slightly wider than shoulder-width.
  • Draw in the abdomen and contract the glutes to maintain the body in a straight line.
  • Perform a push-up as normal, lowering your body within your range of control.
  • At the top of the motion rotate the body and reach the arm toward the ceiling.
  • Allow the feet to rotate naturally while maintaining stability.
  • Return to high plank position and perform for desired number of repetitions.
  • Keep the body stable.
  • Avoid shrugging shoulders.


Eliminate the bench. Perform a standard push-up on an exercise mat, and then rotate into a side plank.
