      Counts as push-ups. I prefer mine with handles and feet up on a bench or something.

      A good quality framed back pack. Of course they're quite valuable to get one just for that so if you're not an ISTist or something .

        Useless, as half of her 40kg or so are resting directly on his feet. You'd need a hambeast as gf in order to make this an effective variation.

      Elevate your feet and hands on platforms (bonus points if you elevate your hands using gymnastics rings) and use a dip belt to add weight.

        This is the only correct answer. Loading shit on your back prevents proper scapular retraction. However, a dip belt fails to place the majority of the weight in the path of resistance. It would have to be some kind of chest harness with a chain and carabiner dangling from the front in order to properly load.

          You can place the dip belt a bit higher up, see picrel.
          That way you have the load further away from the lever pivot and closer to the path of resistance, while also still allowing for full rom push ups with proper scapular retraction.
          Fitnessfaqs has a couple of videos on this variation of push up.

            Seems like a good compromise. Done with a slight decline would probably be optimal. I have cinderblocks in my garage, might give this a try later

            Why not wear the belt lower? It would give a better stimulus to your core muscles, plus it would let you breath better.

    When you do pushups the effort on the end of the movement is highly diminished due to leverage.

      Your momma wishes you were highly diminished due to leverage. She hates you is what I’m getting at.

      pushups are heaviest when the muscle is stretched, that's a good thing. It's a good supplement exercise for serratus, but for upper chest I prefer incline dumbbell bench.

    i do resistance band pushups and i've had good results from them. i stepped into a gym for the first time in years the other day and was able to bench 100kg for reps, something i wasn't able to do before.

      i tried that but all the resistance is at the top of the pushup and the bottom is a normal pushup
      not ideal for chest growth.

      What's the most effective way to weight push ups

      decline pushups with pushup handles and a 16lb plate carrier.
      a backpack filled with shit works. tighten the straps down all the way and shift it up towards your head after your in position so the weight isnt around your low back

        i have this kind of resistance band with removable handles. you can adjust it so that you're under tension at the bottom of the rep by holding it down closer to the centre of the band.

    You can't load as much weight on weighted push ups compared to bench press.

    They're at least as good
    They're more practically difficult to load
    I bet I could develop an elevated pushup machine by taking a belt squat machine, attaching a shoulder harness to the belt, then placing handles in the correct position, and modifying the release lever to be pressed when you plant your feet, and released when you step your feet off the lever
    Oh boy I'm about to make my fortune (no)

      Honestly this sounds pretty cool. That’s what machines should be for, to allow you to do things you can’t do with barbells, not redundant shit like machine curls.

    Despite the shitpost throughout this thread, some evidence to this since it allows the scapula to move freely as intended.
    Nearly alleviating all possibility of shoulder injury.

        I might start doing isometric holds instead

        As for the other dude, why wouldnt it be effectiv to contract against resistance?

    Weighted dips are better for chest compared to bench or push ups.
    Push ups are better for core than dips.
    Bench is just pointless except for the fun and social factors.

    I did them for months during covid with gf on back. They're actually worse than bench. Only bonus is scapula freedom which lets you train serratus. But chest gains were absent. I think because of the angle and lack of stability.

    For me it's an absurdly tiny backpack with some noise cancelling panels as padding and loaded with 1-2kg plates and other tiny weights you can get for absurdly cheap. It's better for weight distribution than big ones. Right now my backpack can reach 20kilos. But my working set (8-12reps) varies between 10 to 15kg anyway
