Benefits of Push Ups

Benefits of push ups

Benefits of push ups are so obvious that there is no secrets about them. Plain and simple. You just need to take a few minutes each day to perform them and you are going to see their incredible impact on your body very soon. Every week your could notice great changes on the shape of your body, while watching yourself in the mirror. Every week!

As far as I am concerned there is no better and faster way of getting fit as doing push ups.

Let's quote some of the many benefits of performing good old fashioned push ups.
They work:

1. your chest
2. hands, forearms, biceps, triceps
3. shoulders, traps, upper back, lower back
4. abs
5. glutes
6. hamstrings, quads, calf, feet
7. your heart muscle gets stronger and your mind get more 'clear', too

But I need to mention so much more:
- you can perform them anywhere, anytime
- you don't need any technical equipment
- it cost you nothing for gym membership or anything else
- you can make them alone, with no hassle around
- regular performing gives you almost perfect lean and very healthy look

You can call push ups a core-strengthening exercise. They largely improve your balance by strengthening and shaping up most important muscle groups in your body - the core.

I believe push-ups are the most effective exercise for improving total body fitness. They include cardiovascular training, weight/body lifting and muscle stretching all in one exercise.

Enough talking. Now drop down and give me twenty.


  1. Burpee big man....it's all about the burpee!

  2. Pushups are great - burpees are fantastic too. There are so many great combos with burpees. Try the Jonestown sprint with chirpees (chin-ups and burpees combined!). Someone showed me a great burpee combo with dumbbells - standing position with dumb-bells (maybe 10-15kg), down into push up, single push up, renegade row with each arm (from pushup position, keep one hand on the ground and bring the other hand up to your chest), complete the squat thrust and abck to standing. Do 3 sets of 12 and the sweat willl be opouring off you plus you just got a great all-over workout! Another great thing to practice - the third world squat, google it :-)

  3. I tried a chirpee a few weeks ago, did three and i could do no more !! regarding the third world squat, just checked it on google, reminds me of pakistan !!

    Some good burpee/ dumbbell combos Z bro, will try some of them out on Dixy tomorrow morning

    Markooo, the burpee is legendary, i know how much u used to look forward to them at the boxing sessions haha !
