Best Way to do Pushups (FOR A BIGGER CHEST!)
WATCH: 7 press-up variations for a bigger chest
There are no short cuts to a bigger chest. Sorry, but it takes a whole lot of hard work, commitment and dedication to sculpt a pair of pecs that will help fill out your shirt.
But hard work doesn’t have to be boring and there are a whole host of exercises and workouts you can try to bulk up. But there’s one exercise – above all else – that is the most effective. And it’s the oldest exercise in the book. The press up.
To put it simply: the press up works. There's a reason it's incorporated into almost every athlete’s workout programme. Not only does the bodyweight movement target your chest, it works your arms, shoulders and core, plus it can be performed almost anywhere. But the best thing about the press up is that it can be easily adapted in order to increase its intensity. Simply changing the elevation, your feet positioning or moving your hands will vary your press up and target a number of different muscles. It’s the Swiss Army knife of the health and fitness world.
So what can you do differently to spice up your press up game? Well, we’re glad you asked. It’s why we’ve called upon Kemo Marriott, founder ofHolistic Motionsto run you through seven of the best press ups to build a bigger chest. Give them a go. You won’t be disappointed.
