Press- Up's

The humble push-up is a sure-fire way to build and pump your chest muscles. Just make sure you’re doing them right.


  1. Lie face down on the floor holding your upper body up with your hands roughly shoulder-width apart.
  2. Steadily lower your chest towards the ground as you breathe in. Keep going until your chest is almost touching the ground.
  3. Exhale and push your body up until your arms are fully extended again. Make sure you contract your chest as you press up.
  4. Pause for a moment at the top, then repeat the motion.
