If you are looking for an exercise that works on both your chest and arms strength then this is the perfect one for you. Your deltoids, pectorals, and even triceps are also worked on as secondary muscles. Place yourself like a regular pushup position. As you lower yourself, lift your right foot and swing your right knee towards the right elbow. As you go back up, swing your knee to its starting position. Repeat the same technique with another leg on the next rep. You must remember to keep yourself aligned perfectly and keep your form perfect.
