How to do Push Ups WORKOUT: Chest, Shoulders & Triceps

Workout & Gym

The push-up is often overlooked and considered unworthy of inclusion in many men’s training programmes. That’s a big mistake. Because when it comes to building a bigger and stronger chest, few moves are better than the classic bodyweight exercise that’s still used to separate the army men from the army boys.

This effective chest builder can be done anywhere, any time – and it works your shoulders, triceps and abs too. And there are a number of great variations that mean you’ll never run out of simple moves that sculpt impressive pecs.

Start with your hands underneath your shoulders and toes on the floor.

Brace your core and raise your hips so your body forms a straight line from head to heels.

Keeping your weight on your arms, bend your elbows to lower your chest towards the floor. Don’t let your hips sag or rise during the set: if they sag, it puts pressure on your back; if they rise, it takes the tension off your chest.

Pause briefly at the bottom, with your chest as close to the floor as possible without touching it.

Press back up powerfully to return to the start.
