Loaded Push Ups


Push ups are great for building the upper torso and triceps and always a good option for training on the road when you don't have access to a gym.

You can make the push ups even more effective by tweaking them a bit. Here are some ways to load up your push up routine.

Explosive

The first tweak is to make the push ups explosive. Instead of the fairly slow up and down motion that most people use, blast your body off the ground. Really push hard. Explosive training has an entirely different effect on the muscles than does the standard style workout. And explosive push ups are really beneficial for your super fast twitch fibers.

Elevated

Another tweak you can make to load up your push ups is to elevate your feet. This puts more pressure on the muscles of the upper torso (as well as the core) and gravity adds its extra load so the muscles have to respond by becoming stronger.

Explosive & Elevated

Tweak the workout even further by performing your elevated push ups explosively. This will really be challenging. You may want to wait a workout or two before adding this one in to the routine.

First Couple of Workouts

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,
