Push-ups are one of the easiest exercises you can learn in school. It can be performed with your own weight and it is easy to master the technique. Push-ups are added to various training programs as an additional or final exercise. To make push-ups more effective, you can change the technique and complexity of the exercise.
Increase the number of repetitions
If you do the same number of push-ups in each exercise for a long time, the effectiveness will decrease. The body gets used to the load and the benefits of exercise decrease.
To complicate push-ups, perform the maximum number of repetitions in every second exercise. Before that, you should do two warm-up sets to prepare the muscles. Every second exercise, add 2-4 sets.
Note: A resident of the United States got into the Guinness Book of Records in the 1960s because he performed 6,000 push-ups without interruption and rest.
