Try doing push-ups on an incline. Or the reverse (decline) by elevating your feet, with your hands on the ground.

If you have a BOSU you can do push-ups with your hands grasping the sides of the Bosu ball (the instability forces you to work harder).

So, okay. When I'm at the gym, using machines or free weights, I know I can step up my game by adding weight once I can comfortably lift for 2 sets of 10 reps comfortably.

At home, since I don't have a full weight set and bench, I've been doing push-ups to work my chest. Now, after I can do a certain number of pushups comfortably, what can I do to take it to the next level other than simply adding more reps. I'd considered getting a weighted vest to increase resistance, but those seem to be mostly designed for running. Any thoughts?
