And you still retaining many of the push-up’s benefits.
4. GLUTE KICKBACK

But your arms need to be spaced at shoulder width. Also your head should be looking forward and the bend of the knees should create a 90-degree angle between the hamstrings and the calves, so this will be your starting position.
Then as you exhale, lift up your right leg until the hamstrings are in line with the back. You need to maintain the 90-degree angle bend and contract the glutes throughout this movement.
Then you need to hold the contraction at the top for a second. Next you need to go back to the initial position s you inhale. And now repeat with the left leg.
