It’s chest day, and you know what that means. Today we’re doing push-ups. Push-ups can be tough, but they’re also fun, versatile, and a great exercise for overall chest development—with a little bit of tricep thrown in. It’s also one of the most accessible exercises available, especially during quarantine when many of us are restricted to our homes. Push-ups, and their many variations, are still the best at-home chest workout.
There are numerous push-up variations, each of which can be adjusted based on your skill level. You can make it easier by having one or both knees on the floor while conducting your press. You can make it more difficult by slowing down the exercise on the negative (lowering) and explosively pushing up during the pressing motion.
For a solid chest workout, I suggest you pick four exercises from this list and try to complete 50 reps total. That’s a great place to start, and as you get more comfortable (and stronger!), you can add more reps or sets overtime to build up even more strength!
