Upper Body Exercice: Push Up
A push-up (or press-up) is a common calisthenics exercise performed in a prone position by raising and lowering the body using the arms.(wikipedia)
Upper Body Exercice: Close Grip Push Up
1- Lie on the floor face down and place your hands closer than shoulder width for a close hand position. Make sure that you are holding your torso up at arms’ length.
2- Lower yourself until your chest almost touches the floor as you inhale.
3- Using your triceps and some of your pectoral muscles, press your upper body back up to the starting position and squeeze your chest. Breathe out as you perform this step.
4- After a second pause at the contracted position, repeat the movement for the prescribed amount of repetitions.

The press, overhead press or shoulder press is a weight training exercise, typically performed while standing, in which a weight is pressed straight upwards from the shoulders until the arms are locked out overhead.

The plank is an isometric core strength exercise that involves maintaining a position similar to a push-up for the maximum possible time.

Upper Body Exercice: SpiderMan Push Up

- Return your right leg to the starting position
- Push-up to the starting position
- Repeat on the other side
Muscle Benefits Of Spiderman Pushups
Spiderman pushups work to develop the pectoral muscles in the chest, triceps in the arms and delts in the shoulders. The difference with this pushup variation is that the movement shifts your weight adding resistance and causing your chest, arms and shoulders to work harder.
Your core is engaged and has to work harder when performing spiderman pushups. There are only three points of contact during the lowest point of the movement. Maintaining balance on three points forces your ab and core muscles to work overtime. (source: Quora)
Upper Body Exercice: Dips
The dip is an exercise used in strength training. Narrow, shoulder-width dips primarily train the triceps, with major synergists being the anterior deltoid, the pectoralis muscles (sternal, clavicular, and minor), and the rhomboid muscles of the back (in that order).
Wide arm training places additional emphasis on the pectoral muscles, similar in respect to the way a wide grip bench press would focus more on the pectorals and less on the triceps. (source:Dip (exercise))
