The alternating staggered push-up is a variation to the standard push-up that strengthens the chest, shoulders, and triceps. Performing the exercise with staggered hand positioning will ensure muscular balance is achieved on both sides of the body. The exercise will also actively engage the core throughout the range of motion.
