Chest – Decline Pushup

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Decline push ups let you focus on form and concentrate on the upper pectorals, so whether you’re after a firm bust or a set of bulging pecs, they’re well worth considering.

Facts:

      • Compound Exercise

 

      • Main muscle targeted – Chest

 

      • Helper muscles – Triceps

Male | Female

Method:

With your hands slightly wider than your shoulder width, place your toes on a bench with your ankle forming a 90 degree angle. Your arms should be vertical and your back straight and aligned with your head.

Lower your body by bending your arms at the elbows. They should bend away from your body rather than in line with it.

Exhale as you push yourself back up to the starting position.

Why it’s good:

Your whole arms and chest are involved in stabilising the movement, so you get a great upper body workout.

What to watch out for:

Keep your body straight. If you drop your head or raise your bum, the shape will be all wrong.
