The Ultimate Guide To Pushups
Whether You Can Perform 100 Pushups Or Can't Even Do One, This Book Can Help YOU! Here's Why …
If you've browsed through my website at all you'll know what my health
and fitness philosophy is. From my experience the quickest way to
get in fantastic shape in record time is to train naturally using your
own bodyweight, just like the animals in nature. Can you think of
any animal in the wild
that DOESN'T put man to shame in terms of health and fitness? You want
ENDURANCE? A Tiger roams over a domain that may cover 100 square miles
daily! You want POWER? Gorilla's exist on a primarily vegetarian diet
yet are 300 to 500 pounds of pure muscle. They are also 5 to 20 times
as strong as the average man. You want SPEED? A Cheetah can run in at
speeds in excess of 70 mph. That's FAST!
Animals Train Naturally, And So Should You
I don't want to belabour the point here but I think the above makes it
obvious. If you could only be a tenth as strong and healthy as most
animals you'll be in better shape than 95% of the human population and in far
better shape than you are now. Animals get in this kind of fantastic
shape without gyms or equipment of any kind. So can you.
This was the guiding philosophy behind one of my first books - Natural Fitness - Natural Bodyweight Exercises For Men and Women
. Although it had other exercises in it the focus of that book was on what I consider to be the Holy Trilogy
Of Bodyweight Exercises:
- The Push up (for your upper body)
- The Bodyweight Squat (for your lower body)
- Backbending (for your spine).
The response I received from this book was phenomenal and I know it has
helped many people achieve a healthier, stronger, and younger body.
However one bit of feedback I got back kind of surprised me, although
it really shouldn't have. What was it?
PEOPLE LOVE PUSHUPS
Although Natural Fitness had many press up variations in it, some people
just couldn't get enough of this classic bodyweight exercise. Through
my book people had rediscovered the timeless fitness advantages of
performing push ups. What are they? Here are just a few:
Push ups Strengthen Your Entire Body
When you perform a push up your chest, deltoids, back, triceps and
abdominals all get a fantastic workout. What's more it improves your
core strength like nobodies business.
Works Through All 3 Types Of Muscle Building Resistance
Most people, particularly weightlifters, are unaware that there even are 3 kinds. They are:
- Concentric Muscle Building - This is where the muscle is forced to contract
- Eccentric Muscle Building - This is where the muscle elongates due to the contraction of its opposite, opposing muscle.
- Isometric - This is where force is applied to the muscle, but the length does not change.
When people lift weights they often make the mistake of swinging the
weight, allowing gravity and momentum to do the work. With push ups this
is almost impossible, as if you are not careful and deliberate with the
movement you'll run the risk of ramming your nose into the floor!
Push ups Build Muscular Endurance
Consider again the endurance a Tiger possesses, or an olympic gymnast
for that matter. They are not only unbelievably strong but they have
strength that lasts. I'm not sure why this is but I've experienced it
and I know others have as well. Natural bodyweight exercises like
push ups build strength and endurance in a way that weightlifting just
They Improve Your Reaction Time and Balance
It is the job of the proprioceptive muscle fibres in your body to keep
your body balanced. When you perform a pushup these fibres are
continuously firing in an effort to prevent your body from tipping
over. By doing so push ups help to improve your balance and reaction
Pushups Have Withstood The Test Of Time
Yes, there's a reason why pushups have endured as a exercise and even
today have survived the ages of iron, Nautilus and Cybex machines. The
reason for this is that pushups are a fantastic exercise that simply
OK, by now you're probably convinced that pushups are a great exercise
that you could benefit from. However where do you start if you can't
even perform one standard classic push up? On the other hand what if you
are experienced and can perform 100 push ups already? What else is there?
Introducing THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO PUSHUPS
It's with these two extremes in mind, as well as everyone in between,
that I decided to create "The Ultimate Guide To Push ups". The Ultimate
Guide To Push ups is a fully illustrated course that contains over 65
different pushup variations. If you are a complete beginner there are
pushups here that my grandmother can do. If you are already a hardcore
athlete who can perform 100 pushups in a row there are variations and
ideas here that will challenge even you. I think that's one of the
reasons why I love bodyweight exercises in general and pushups in
particular. The varieties of exercises you can perform are literally
endless. You are really only limited by your imagination.
To Summarize, Here Are The Benefits You Can Expect When You Add Push ups To Your Exercise Routine
