Kneeling Push-Up Benefits

  • Kneeling push-ups are an easier option for beginners or those who can’t do push-ups. Although the push-up mainly targets the chest muscles, it is a bodyweight exercise that works your triceps and front shoulder muscles.
  • They can be used to increase the size and definition of your arms and to develop proportional strength between your triceps and your chest.
