Push up must have been the simplest form of exercise, yet it is often overlooked when creating a health and fitness training program. The Push Up works a lot of muscles at the same time. It can be done almost anywhere and has dramatic health benefits for the body when done continuously.
How many times had committed to an exercise routine and thought of going tothe gym? I believe that many of those times end up in failing to commit with the routine simply because you don’t have the time to go to the gym. You need to spend an hour in the gym performing cardio and weight training, but time is something that you have. Do you think that this is an excused for you to get fat? NO, there are bodyweight exercises that can be done at the comfort of your home. It doesn’t require anything, but your body. Of all the bodyweight exercises, I think that push up is the most effective exercises because it works several muscles at the same time.
Do you notice how often have you spent money on a gym membership, exercise equipment, or diet book and you don’t end up sticking with it? You spend all your money hadn’t seen any progress on your part. That may be because you are just too lazy or because you don’t have the time to go to the gym.
Since you don’t have the time to go to the gym, then try a different approach. Start with 1 set of push up to failure every day. Enough with those excuses and make this work.
As already stated on this article, push up works several muscles (chest, shoulders, and tricep) at the same time. It also works the abdomen and glutes. If you are going to think about it, you will find how useful this exercise is. In fact, a plank is like a push up in the holdup position. The plank works the abdominals and glutes. So despite the fact that push up won’t work the entire body, it is can still give you a good physique.
If you are able to stick with push up to failure for one month, try adding lunges for the second month. For month 3 add crunches. For month 4 add chin ups. Pretty soon you will be amazed on how fit you are now.
This simple fitness routine might be the answer to your fitness problem. You don’t need to choose between work and fitness, all you need is to choose the right exercise that will work for you.
