A Staggered Push Up is a variation of the standard Push Up.
The difference lies in the position of the hands.
In a Standard Push Up the hands are in a parallel position to each other.
In a Staggered Push Up one hand is placed in a higher position than the other hand, but the same motion is used to perform the movement.
This bodyweight exercise becomes more challenging because the staggered position places your core in an unstable position, more stress is placed on one arm at a time and it places a greater amount of stress on the chest.
