The variety of exercise regimens and equipment available has grown exponentially in the last 20 years. Yet somehow there is no replacement for push-ups. This basic exercise if one of the most common and has been around probably as long as we have.
Push-ups recruit several major muscles groups, including biceps, core muscles, triceps, pectorals, and deltoids making it a very effective way to increase upper body strength and overall tone. Done consistently, they can also help to prevent shoulder injuries. (Remember to bring the knees to the floor if you're working with sensitivity in the lower back.) Besides the physical benefits, push-ups are a very easy way to get rid of nervous tension or stress and get an ego boost.
So go ahead. Wherever you are, drop and give me 10 of your best...20 if you're feeling brave. And if you feel as if the classic push-up is not entertaining enough, check out the video below for some creative variations.
