In a nutshell:

Push-ups are a great mainstay of any exercise routine. They work for several upper body muscle groups, don`t require too much time, and don`t require any gym equipment at all. With regular practice and a solid routine, anyone can increase the overall number of push-ups he or she can do. In this video, we`ll learn how to do more push-ups, build your upper body strength and endurance, and ace your next fitness test.

1. Improved Upper-Body Strength You are, after all, bending your arms to lower and lift your entire body. Pushups are a great upper-body strengthener. That’s because they work essentially your entire upper half, including the front of your chest, both the front and back of your arms (aka biceps and triceps), shoulders, and upper back.

Another perk: Compared to other upper-body moves that target just one specific muscle group—like bicep curls, for example, which home in on (surprise, surprise) your biceps—pushups hit many different muscle groups at once, making them an efficient, effective exercise for improving upper-body strength on the whole. But pushups aren’t just about upper-body strength. When performed correctly, pushups are a great way to stabilize and strengthen your core. By targeting these other core muscles, you’re helping the entire unit of your core become stronger and more stable.

In order for the heart and muscles to get stronger, the workout load must be gradually increased compared to what you are normally accustomed to. Push-ups are a compound exercise, meaning they involve multiple joints and work for different muscle groups at the same time. You’ll feel most of the work in your upper body—primarily the deltoids of your shoulders, the pectoral muscles of the chest, the triceps and biceps, and the muscles on either side of the spine in the back body. If you’re still working on building up your strength for standard push-ups, you can modify them by lowering to your knees, using an incline, or standing up and facing a wall.

Before you start cranking out multiple reps, it’s important to practice good push-up form. As you lower and lift, avoid locking out your elbows. 5. As you exhale, contract your chest muscles and push back up through your hands to return to your starting position.

The best way to stick to a workout and build up strength for your push-ups is to create a regular routine and make it part of a weekly workout regimen. You might start your cardio or strength training workout with a few sets of push-ups, or add them to a circuit of high-intensity exercises. To find the number of repetitions you should perform in each set, do as many push-ups as you can in two minutes and divide this number by three. Each workout will generally include three sets of this number of repetitions.

Perform your basic workout with three sets of push-ups with a 30-second rest between sets. Each week, add two to three repetitions to your sets.
