I love push-ups! They are great total body exercise that not only works chest, but also core and upper body. They are a great exercise if you have a fat loss or strength training/toning goal. I also love push-ups because they can easily be done at home!
A couple weeks ago on Facebook you may have seen a video I shared about push-ups. The purpose of that video was to teach 4 variations of the push-up, so no matter where you are in your fitness journey (beginner to advanced) there is a version right for you.
If you missed the video, here it is.
4 Push-up Variations: From Beginner to Advanced Level
BUT, you know I also always like to give YOU (my blog followers) a little extra than what I share on my social media pages, so with that in mind I also recorded a second video this week with additional push-up variations. I also demonstrate modifications for each of the push-ups, so if you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced exerciser, there is a version of these push-ups you’ll be able to do.
In all, with these videos you get a total of 7 push-up variations you can start incorporating into your fitness program right now.
How do you incorporate push-ups into your workout program?
I suggest starting between 8 to 12 repetitions of the push-up of choice. You may repeat these for 2-3 sets. As always, listen to your body and rest when you need to (especially if form begins to suffer).
If you try any of these push-up variations, let me know how you do!
