How To Push-up
Do you really know how to do a pushup? All it takes is 5 simple steps, and we’ll tell you all of them right now!
- Lie down on all fours, and put your hands slightly more than shoulder-width apart.
- This is the proper pushup form. Your arms and feet should be the only parts of your body touching the ground at this point.
- Straighten both your arms and your legs
- Make sure your back and legs are in a straight line to avoid hurting your back. If your form is right, then your elbows should be bent at a 45 degree angle with your body when you’re coming down for the pushup.
- Lower your body until your chest is almost touching the floor
- Try to lower yourself in one smooth motion, without going too fast
- Pause for a moment, and then push your body back up with your arms
- While you perform a pushup, make sure your pelvis is tilted backward. Also, clench your glutes and abs. This will keep you from arching your back and will make your pushups much more effective.
- Repeat the motion as many times as you wish
Don’t worry if 50 pushups is too much for you right now because you can start small and build up to it over time. Also, you can do smaller sets of pushups that add up to 50 a day, instead of doing all 50 pushups in a row. For example, you could do 5 sets of 10 pushups. Doesn’t that sound easier?
Now that you can do a pushup, let’s find out what 50 pushups every day will do to your body.?
What Happens After 50 Push-ups a Day
Increased Upper Body Strength
Push-ups are a strength exercise, which means they’re great for building muscles. A push-up targets the triceps, biceps, and pectoral muscles especially, which means you’ll enjoy stronger arms and a stronger chest from 50 pushups every day.
Push-ups aren’t just great for arm and chest muscles though, they also build up your core! This is good news because your core muscles are vital to having good posture. When you do 50 pushups every day, you strengthen your core muscles and improve your posture dramatically!
Burn More Calories
Did you know push-ups are one of the best exercises for weight loss? Doing 50 pushups every day will burn a significant amount of calories, which will help you lose weight quickly and safely.
One benefit of doing 50 pushups every day is better balance, and you might not expect that. Every time you do a pushup, you are putting strain on your muscles. However, you’re also training them to control movement too. On top of stretching your muscles, this means your balance will improve with each pushup you do!
Special Kinds of Push-Ups
Narrow Push Up
If you want stronger arms, you’ll definitely love the narrow pushup! The trick for a narrow pushup is to keep your arms close together and have them be less than shoulder width apart. Narrow pushups build bigger triceps, which is great for growing your arm muscles!
Diamond Push Up
If you want strong tricep muscles, then you should try the diamond pushup! The secret for doing a great diamond push-up is to place your hands near each other so that your fingers form a diamond shape. Be careful not to flare your elbows during the diamond pushup, and you’ll be on your way to bigger arms in no time!
Decline Push Up
If you want to build muscles in your shoulders and upper chest, then you should try the decline pushup. To do a decline pushup, you should enter the usual pushup position with one special exception. Instead of having your feet on the ground, they should rest on a box, bench, or other object elevated off the ground! This means your muscles will have to push more weight to lift you off than ground compared to a normal pushup, which means bigger muscles in your upper chest and shoulders!
One Leg Push-Up
Did you know you can do a pushup with one leg? It’s one of the hardest kinds of pushups, but the benefits of muscle growth will shock you. Doing leg pushups every day will exercise your quads and glutes. This means you’ll grow leg muscles as well as arm muscles in one exercise!
Wide Push Up
Did you know wide pushups can explode your chest muscles? The trick is to do a normal pushup, but increase the distance between your hands as much as possible. This puts more strain on your chest muscles, which means those muscles will grow bigger and faster than you’d ever believe!
Pushups are great for building muscle, but as always make sure to put safety first when exercising. If you feel pain or extreme discomfort while doing a pushup stop right away, and seek a medical professional or trainer.
