Variations of the Push-up
In a few of the chest workout sections we’ve talked about the benefits you can get from hitting the upper and mid chest. This is a great way to ensure balanced development of your chest muscles. Unlike a few of the other body parts, it’s a bit easier to work your entire chest at home. The key is to take advantage of inclines and declines. With merely a chair, table, or anything that provides elevation, you’ll be able to do variations of the push-up that work each area of the chest. For example, try this for a chest exercise: 3x20 push-ups, 3x20 incline push-ups, 3x20 decline push-ups. This is a very simple example of a chest workout you can do at home.
