Build a strong chest
How to Build a strong chest without any machines or weights??
Is it possible?
How about the old fashioned push-up!!
Yes, in some ways pushups are even more effective than a bench press. A pushup is referred to as a closed-chain exercise, meaning you move your body through space, instead of using a bar.
In order to make all that happen, you need to engage your core muscles to stabilize your torso. This means you use about 75% of your own body weight during each rep, while targeting your chest, shoulders, triceps, and your core.
This movement works a lot more muscles than you would by bench press alone.
Pushups also can be done in many creative ways!!
• Vary the distance your hands are apart
o The wider the hand position - outer chest
o The closer the hand position - inner chest
• Do pushups in an incline or decline position
o Use a bench - incline or decline position
o Use a stability ball - more stabilization required
• Vary Technique of Pushup
o Use one arm
o Clap between reps
o Use round dumbbells to force you to stabilize
• Advanced Techniques
o Incline Pushup on using stability ball - full body weight and balance
o Decline Pushup with feet on stability ball
o Decline Pushup with feet on stability ball, hands holding dumbbells
So if you don't have weights don't fret'.. Your own body weight with a little creativity will develop the chest you have always wanted.. Toned, Tight and Defined..
