Push-Ups the Best Bodyweight Exercise

A push-up (Liegestütz) is a common calisthenics exercise performed in a prone position by raising and lowering the body using the arms. Push-ups exercise the pectoral muscles, triceps, and anterior deltoids, with ancillary benefits to the rest of the deltoids, serratus anterior, coracobrachialis and the midsection as a whole.

While the push-up primarily targets the muscles of the chest, arms, and shoulders, support required from other muscles results in a wider range of muscles integrated into the exercise:

  • Abdominals
  • Deltoid
  • Chest Muscles
  • Stabilizers: back body
  • Triceps brachii
  • Forearms
  • Biceps

Your Health Coach recommends a daily routine of 3 rounds and 10 repetitions of:

  • Push-ups
  • Narrow-grip push-ups: Do a normal push-up with your hands just a few inches apart from each other underneath the chest.
