Can't Master The Push-Up? Here Are 6 Exercises For Strength

You know when you grow your hair, and you hit the uncomfortable time between your short style and the longer style you are waiting for, oh-so-patiently? Yeah, the same way to push-ups kind of work. When you've mastered a normal push-up, there's a moment when you're solid ... just not solid enough to take on tougher variants like the push-up from Russia. Like your hair, before you attain your goal, you still need some growing time. And that's just what these exercises for improving push-ups can help you do.

Trainer Kayla Itsines recently shared several Instagram workouts that help improve the main muscles you 're using while doing push-ups. "Not only can you boost your strength by performing these exercises but it will also strengthen your push-up form," she says. If you integrate these into your weekly upper body workouts, you can improve your push-ups to a degree that allows you to bust out every variation like a champ.

Here are six push-up strengthening exercises that Itsines suggests to take your muscle strength to next level.
