When it comes to doing chest workouts, it seems that pushups are one of the top upper body workouts to do, but at times they can be overlooked. Why? Well most people (beginners) seek to do the “best killer workouts every” to get super fast results. But the reality is that the best way to do get results fast is by starting with the basics or just following a simple routine. And this is where pushups come into play.
Doing pushups may seem basic but they are effective, for they workout the chest, triceps, biceps, and forearms. The reason why pushups can be often overlooked at times is because you can build a pretty fast muscle tolerance when doing pushups with your body weight alone. But when pushups are done right you can great results. So here are some methods you can use to maximize your pushups.
One thing to start doing is to actually do slower pushups. What this does is it allows your muscles to feel more intensity from your weight instead of allowing momentum to assist you while doing fast pushups. Also, a great way to do pushups is by making sure you look straight up like military style pushups, and hit your chest and chin to the ground as you go down. Doing this will also allow your muscles (mainly your chest and triceps) to feel more intensity because doing a full push up makes it that much harder to complete once your muscles began to fatigue.
And doing a simple 3 sets of 20 pushups like this could help get some decent fast upper body results, especially if you don’t have time to go to a gym nor have a home gym. Oh yeah and another way you can also maximum your pushups is by adding weight onto your back. You can put anything from books, weights, or just something pretty heavy. All together doing pushups slower, using military style, with added weight to your back can really increase your results.
So if you been looking for a workout routine to start with or just been seeking a way to switch up your workouts for greater muscle growth, maybe doing pushups the way this article just went over, can be of great benefit to you.
