Exercise of the Week: Push Ups
So many times bodybuilders tend to focus only on weight lifting as a part of their training regimen. While weight lifting is needed in order to achieve your bodybuilding goals, a great alternative to exercising your chest is push ups. Especially when traveling, bodybuilders often tend to slack or even take some time off from the gym because they do not have access to a gym.
Pushups are great because they can be performed whenever and wherever. Regardless of where you may be, push ups can help you maintain your strength until you get back from vacationing or traveling. Push ups can also be performed at the end of a chest exercise routine to add variety to your workouts.
Pushups Exercise Description:
1. Place your hands about 36 inches apart on either the floor or the wall.
2. Lower yourself until your chest almost touches the floor or the wall. Breathe in as you perform this step.
3. Press your upper body back up to the starting position. Breathe out as you perform this step.
(Note: If you are performing pushups using the wall, place your feet at a distance greater than your arms length when they are extended).
If you can incorporate push ups into your exercise routine, you will not only be adding variety to your workouts but also be well on your way to achieving your fitness, weight loss or bodybuilding goals.
