Barbell Push-Up

Barbell Push-UpI  Barbell Push-UpII

This movement may be performed with a smith machine or a barbell positioned on the bottom of a power rack.  Set yourself up for a regular push-up (body straight, abs tight, etc) and grab onto the barbell.  Perform a push-up.  To increase the difficulty, you can elevate your feet or make the movement weighted (vests, chains, etc).  You can also make the movement easier and strengthen your push-ups by putting the bar higher on the rack (upper body higher than lower body).
