Why Pushups Have Survived the Test of Time (and why they will continue to do so)

There is no question that the basic pushup is one of the
classic bodyweight exercises of all time. It has been around for thousands of
years and continues to thrive to this day. Why? Because there are few exercises
that can strengthen and tone the entire body as well as the basic pushup. One
of the reasons for this is that pushups work through all 3 types of muscle
building resistance at once. These are:

Concentric Muscle Building - This is where the muscle works
because it is forced to contract.

Eccentric Muscle Building - This is where the muscle
lengthens due to the contraction of the opposite muscle.

Isometric Muscle Building - This is where the muscle is
stimulated but its length does not change.

By performing a pushup slowly while pausing for a second or
two at the bottom and top of the movement you are getting the benefits of all
three muscle building methods. Not bad, don’t you think?

One of the problems with weight lifting, as well as other
exercises that use ProForm 6.0 RT treadmill (http://treadmillus.com/proform-6-0-rt-2/), 
is that people often let gravity do the work. For example when
performing a bicep curl you’ll get the benefit of concentric muscle building
when you curl the weight up but you’ll miss out on the eccentric when you lower
the weight as gravity takes over. The isometric part is often ignored entirely.

By their nature pushups actually force you to get the
benefits of the eccentric and isometric muscle building types as if you don’t
you run the risk of slamming your nose into the floor. Pain can be a powerful
motivator to perform an exercise properly, that’s for sure!

There is a problem with the Classic Pushup however. For many
advanced fitness enthusiasts they often find it a little boring. On the other
end of the scale there are some beginners who can’t even perform one. If you
fit into either category (or somewhere in between) then I’ve just created a
book that might interest you. It’s called The Ultimate Guide to Pushups. It
contains over 65 different pushup variations so that you can get the most out
of this phenomenal form of exercise. Even if you can’t do a single regular
pushup there are easy pushup variations that you can do. If you are advanced
there are pushup variations here that will have you grunting and sweating in no
time.

I’m really excited about this book as i LOVE Pushups. There’s
a reason pushups, in all their forms, have withstood the test of time. They
simply work! Try it for yourself and see!

Yours In Good Health
