A push up is a simple bodyweight exercise performed by lowering and raising your body using your arms, while resting it on your toes. It is a strength-training exercise and focuses on almost all the chest muscles. A bench press, which is a crucial part of bodybuilding, is also a strength-training exercise, and is performed by pressing the weight of a barbell away from the body, while lying on your back on a bench. It does not work on all chest muscles and needs supporting exercises to ensure a complete chest workout.
If one looks for an exercise that is really intense, one could even try to perform the Russian bench press routine. This was used by the Russians at the 2000 IPF World Bench Press Championships, where they won 8 gold medals in 11 competitions. This is a highly detailed, specific, and intense routine, and the results are quite well-known.
Here, you lift almost 60-65% of your body weight. But you don't have to worry about it even if you are a little overweight, as the resistance you subject your body to during a push up, is proportional to the capacity of your body.
