Doubravka Tamara. Bench. January 12th , 2018.
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.
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.
The use of dumbbells provides a compound exercise, and other muscles like the triceps and shoulder muscles are also involved in the movement. This movement helps to strengthen the stabilizer muscles, and a dumbbell in each hand will also improve your coordination. On the contrary, while using barbells, the stabilizer muscles will not be actively involved. However, this allows you to bench press heavy weights.
Indoor wooden benches that are used for seating areas all have beautiful features like ornate arms and maybe a back on it for the added comfort. Some of these benches will look a lot more stylish than just your plain wood bench as it will more than likely have an upholstered or leather seat.
