The Ultimate Push-up Workout #3
Home | Single Workout | Intermediate: 5 exercises
This intense push-up workout is specifically designed to boost your upper body strength and muscular endurance. The routine comprises five different variations of push-ups, each aimed at targeting specific muscle groups in the chest, shoulders, and triceps. With 3 sets of 5 challenging reps for each exercise, this workout is ideal for individuals looking to build strength and endurance in their upper body.
The first superset starts with the traditional push-up, engaging the pectoral muscles, anterior deltoids, and triceps. This is followed by a wide grip push-up, focusing on the outer chest and shoulders. The superset is designed to maximize the workout's effectiveness by targeting different areas with minimal rest in between, ensuring a greater pump and burn in the muscles.
The second superset includes the diamond push-up, which emphasizes the triceps and inner chest, and the decline push-up, targeting the lower chest and front deltoids. The incline push-up is the final exercise, primarily working the upper chest and anterior deltoids. Throughout the workout, maintaining proper form is crucial to maximize the effectiveness of each exercise and prevent injury. Remember to breathe consistently and engage your core for stability. With dedication and consistency, this challenging push-up routine can lead to noticeable strength gains in your upper body.
