The Push Up

Similar to the bench press, but harder to progress.

Push ups are similar to the bench press, using similar upper body muscles. They have the advantage of using more muscle mass and joints then the bench press. But have the the disadvantage of being harder to progress – i.e. add weight.

Also, I don’t have a bench to press from. So push ups it is.
