The humble push-up is a sure-fire way to build and pump your chest muscles. Just make sure you’re doing them right.
- Lie face down on the floor holding your upper body up with your hands roughly shoulder-width apart.
- Steadily lower your chest towards the ground as you breathe in. Keep going until your chest is almost touching the ground.
- Exhale and push your body up until your arms are fully extended again. Make sure you contract your chest as you press up.
- Pause for a moment at the top, then repeat the motion.
