One of the reasons that we started this website is our love of the push-up. Push-ups are a great exercise with a lot of benefits. First you can do push-ups any where, any time, any place and with no special equipment. I always think of my days in the Army when I would “DROP AND GIVE ME 20”
One of the base exercises that the Military has used for years & years is the push-up. Why? Because it WORKS!
There are also many different types of push-ups that you can to help increase your strength and endurance.
Many people think that push-ups are just an exercise for the chest but push-ups can be considered a full body workout. Push-ups not only benefit the chest but also work the triceps, shoulders, upper & lower back, core, legs and can even have a cardio benefit. We will actually be posting a CARDIO PUSH-UP routine in the future.
Since performing push-ups are a resistance/strength movement performing them can help with improving bone density. Push-ups increase the heart rate, which in turn increase metabolism and burns many calories.
Anyone can do them. It doesn’t matter if you are 12 or 72, you can do push-ups.
As I said earlier push-ups can be performed in many positions and just about anywhere.
Another benefit of push-up is muscle growth. Yes it is possible to build/grow and maintain muscle by doing push-ups.
Doing push-ups cans be motivating. That’s right as you improve and do more push-ups you will be motivated to keep up and keep improving with them.
The best overall benefit of push-up is that they are FREE! Don’t you need to buy anything to do push-ups.
So there is just a few benefits to performing push-ups. Now don’t worry if you are still intimidated and can’t do many we are going to help you. Stick with us here at The Push-Up Challenge and we will help you reach your push-up goal.
