Best and Easiest Technique To Be Fit Is Push-Up Workouts

By: Ranju Kumar

Push-ups are one of the oldest and easiest exercises that you can do to keep yourself healthy and fit in every way. They are probably one of the cheapest and best exercises, as they can be done at the comfort of home without much guidance. Unfortunately many people don't know how to perform pushups and thus don't know the benefits too.

Pushups can offer you with many perks, only when you perform it in a proper way.

In today's busy world many people won't find enough time to go to a gym and workout for hours to be fit and healthy but a simple pushup does it all. They are one of the excellent ways of exercising and can be done anywhere as they are budget friendly too.

Pushups are designed to strengthen your triceps, pectorals, shoulders and almost the whole of your upper body. Performing pushups will not only help you to pump up blood to muscles but will also help you to lose weight and keep you fit in all possible ways.

As I always say warm-ups are very essential before doing any kind of workout. It will be more effective, if you warm-up well before starting your pushups.

Pushups can be done in various ways:

Regular Pushups- Regular push-ups are the usual push-ups that everybody does.

Wide pushups keep your hands just a bit wider than shoulder width, in order to gain maximum effect.

Medicine ball pushups- This is performed just like a normal pushup, but the only difference is to use medicine ball. This move requires lot of core strength. Medicine ball pushup is a bit advanced one, as it stabilizes the muscles of your upper body and gives you great strength.

Chair pushups- Performing chair pushups are very useful for lower chest, shoulder and triceps. Let me tell you how to do this. Have two chairs of equal height of your shoulder far away from one another. Place one hand flat on each seat and extend legs behind. Press yourself back up and repeat as many times as possible.

"But some fitness gurus recommend that it is better to use stairs than chair as they increase resistance and stamina".

As push-ups are a high-rep exercise, they help to increase your blood flow within the muscles and arms. If you use these exercises properly, you will definitely gain strength and condition your muscles. Start with the basic push-up and work up to 3 sets of 8 reps, then challenge yourself more.
