How to Do a Knee Tuck With a Push-Up

I'm a Trainer, and This Is the Move You Should Do to Strengthen Your Abs and Arms at Once

I'm all about efficient workouts and exercises, which is why the glider knee tuck and push-up has become one of my go-to moves. The push-up will help you improve your upper-body strength and the knee tuck targets your abdominal muscles. You don't need to do many reps to feel your muscles working, which is another reason why I love it.

Add this exercise into your next bodyweight workout or use it to activate your core and arms before starting your workout.

How to Do a Knee Tuck With Push-Up

  • Start in a plank position with a glider underneath each foot. If you don't have gliders, you can use a towel on a hard surface to perform this exercise.
  • Engage your core and bring both knees in, toward your elbows. With control, return to the start position. Then, do a push-up. Your core should be engaged and your back should be in a neutral position throughout the entire movement.
  • This counts as one rep.
  • Complete three sets of 10 reps.
