Introduction to the Bent Side Knee Push-up

The Bent Side Knee Push-up is a modified version of the classic push-up, designed to strengthen the chest, shoulders, and triceps while also engaging the core muscles. It is ideal for beginners, individuals recovering from an injury, or those who find standard push-ups challenging, as it reduces the amount of bodyweight you need to lift. By incorporating this exercise into your routine, you can build upper body strength and stability in a more manageable and less straining way.
