Guide to Push-Up Exercises

What are Push-Ups?

Push-Ups are exercises done to stretch and tone the front of the body and the upper arms (biceps and triceps muscles). Push-Ups are performed lying on your stomach on the floor. By raising your upper body, using your arms, you stretch your abs, chest and upper arms.

Push-Ups Develop Arm Muscles

Performing push-ups develop the main arm muscles, which are the biceps and triceps. The biceps, or biceps brachii, is the big muscle that runs along the front of the arm, flexing the arm and turning the palm upwards. The triceps run along the back of the arm and move the arm in towards the body.

Push-Ups Build Pectoral Muscles (Pecs)

The pectoral muscles are worked together with the arm muscles when doing push ups. The pectorals or 'pecs' are large muscles stretched across the upper chest in the front of the body. The pectoral muscles are used to flex and rotate the arms, move the shoulders and for pushing and pulling.

Push-Ups and Toning

Push-Ups are effective for tightening and toning loose skin on the inside of the arm. In normal life, we don't often use the triceps muscle - the under-side of the upper arm - and as a result this area becomes flabby. Push-Ups help tighten this area.
