Check out these 6 different variations and when you have time to yourself, give them a try.

If you are looking for an exercise that works out both your chest and arms then this is the perfect one for you. Your deltoids, pectorals, and even triceps are also worked on as secondary muscles. Place yourself in a regular pushup position. As you lower yourself, lift your right foot and swing your right knee towards the right elbow. As you go back up, swing your knee to its starting position. Repeat the same technique with another leg on the next rep. Note: Remember to keep yourself aligned perfectly and keep your form as perfect as you can.
