Increase Push Ups

How to Increase Push Ups Quickly

Push-ups have been used all over the world for more than a century in testing and conditioning for the body. It is a good way to test a person's overall strength capacity and as a result it is a good way to improve your muscle mass, strength as well as your physical condition generally.

There are some very effective methods of improving the number of push-ups that you can do and you will get positive results in less than two weeks but you need to stick to a program. Again like everything else to do with increasing strength it has to do with progressive resistance.

The first thing that you need to do is get a yardstick that you can use in order to measure your progression and your improvement. This is simple as you get down on the ground and perform as many push-ups as you can until you fail and can’t do anymore.

It is important to note here that doing a push-up incorrectly or cheating is completely useless. Either you do them correctly with your hands level with your shoulders and nothing else touching the ground except your feet. Keeping your back and legs straight and breathing out on exertion.

Make a note of the maximum amount of push-ups that you can do, take a nice long break and then come back to start your push-up workout. In the first week you need to divide the maximum number of reps that you did in half and do two sets half and half the number of your maximum reps.

Your first two days you will only be doing two sets in order to get used to it, then on the third day you should add a third set. It goes without saying that you should know very well that intensity is everything.

This means a maximum of 30 seconds rest between the sets that you are doing. If you are able to start adding a few reps in the beginning of your workout then you should do that. In the second week you will be adding 5 reps to each set that you are doing.

It is important that you start to do this short and quick workout at least three times a day. But in the second week if you really want fast results then you should do it on the hour every hour. It is important that you do nothing on Saturday and Sunday, just rest and repair.

In my book “The Muscle Experiment” I talk about how I was able to put on a solid 39lbs of solid muscle in less than 6 months with bodyweight training, and exactly how YOU can do it as well. In case you haven't downloaded The Muscle Experiment, I suggest you download it immediately and start implementing the little known techniques. This alone should put you on the road to massive size and strength.

To your success,
