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.
On Wednesday, one should carry out the same routine, but using 180 pounds of weight instead. The same procedure and process should be followed. Next, that is on Friday, move up to 185 pounds. On returning next Monday, start off with 180 pounds. Then move to 185 pounds on Wednesday, and 190 pounds on Friday. In this manner, the weights should be kept increasing 5 pounds to the number every week, and within 2 - 3 weeks, one would begin to see a noticeable difference. The only way of performing this exercise routine to build muscle mass, is by gradually increasing the weight. It is important to remember that doing so instantly or rapidly could cause a great deal of fatigue.
As for nutrients, the most important for you to get plenty of is protein. It is referred to as the building block of muscle. In order for you to get natural muscle gains, you are going to want to consume quality protein. You can do this with food or with a protein supplement, that is entirely up to you.
It is very important to consider proper technique while performing any exercise. With a proper technique, you not only reap maximum benefits, but can also avoid injuries. Bench press is one of the very popular exercises in the gym amongst both men as well as women. It is mainly so, because it is entirely an upper body exercise and it helps in building upper body strength. The muscles which are strengthened with this weight training exercise include triceps, anterior and middle deltoids, pectoralis major and minor, wrist flexors, etc. Along with these muscles, the rotator cuff and biceps work as shoulder stabilizers and are slightly strengthened.
