How To Do Push Ups
1) Place your hands flat on a mat with arms straight, abs tight, holding your body in a plank position
2) You may keep your legs straight or knees on the mat for a beginners variation
3) Lower your body to the floor with your chest an inch or two away from the floor
4) Now push your torso back up until your arms lock
5) Repeat until you perform the required exercises for the day
Push Ups For Beginners
The wider your arms are the better it is for you to execute a successful push up. If you are a beginner, perform the push up slowly.
If you find it easier, begin by balancing your knees on the exercise mat instead of your toes. Try not to lower your hips during a push up. If your lower back begins to hurt during the push up, stop and take a break.
Variations Of Advanced Push Ups
- One Arm Push Up
- T Push Up
- Wide Grip Push Up
- Incline Push Up
- Decline Push Up
One Arm Push Up
A one arm push up strengthens the chest and triceps muscles and builds a strong core. The abdominal muscles and obliques have to work extra hard to keep the body stabilized while using one arm, therefore you must have sufficient strength to maintain the position.
T Push Up
The T push up requires the muscles to work much harder to balance the body during the exercise. It works the core muscles, chest, and shoulder at the same time, which does not happen often.
>Wide Grip Push Up
The wide grip push up is more difficult than the standard push up. It targets the chest, triceps, and muscles in the front of the shoulder.
Incline Push Up
The incline push up is the standard push up targeting the chest, triceps, deltoids, and core muscles.
Decline Push Up
The decline push up is an advanced upper body exercise targeting the chest, shoulders, arms, and back. By placing the feet higher than the hands, the level of difficulty can be significantly increased by maintaining proper rigid body position requires significant strength and stability in the core, legs, and back.
