One of the best ways to train with bodyweight is to utilize the technique dropset, which has you applying a technique to your early reps on a classic bodyweight movement, then tweaking that technique later to allow for more reps. It's a solid way to create overload without any external resistance, and it's often more challenging than you think.

It's also a great way to level up your pushup, pushing your chest to greater gains without the use of a bench press. And that's what you do in the Half-Full Post Pushup Dropset from Men's Health fitness director Ebenezer Samuel, C.S.C.S. The pushup series, which requires nothing more than your bodyweight and a pole or post that you can grab with one hand, pushes your chest to the limit, and, says Samuel, it forces you to own the entire pushup range of motion.
