Regular readers of the blog will know that I’m a big fan of compound exercises (multi-joint movements that require the use of various muscle groups) because they give you more “bang for your buck” when it comes to working out. One compound exercise in particular, the push-up, requires you to utilize muscle groups in your upper body, core and lower body which is why this weekend workout is full of them.
The bodyweight workout below includes a variety of push-up variations that will strengthen numerous muscle groups in your body. I recommend performing 10 reps of each push-up variation followed by 90 seconds of rest for four circuits. Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.
