Push Ups Muscles Worked? What muscles are used in push ups? Can push ups build muscle? Let’s find out!
I am a big fan of push ups. They can be done from home, do not require any equipment, and give many different upper body parts an excellent workout.
I particuarly love the old school feel to push ups.
I always think back to the Rocky films with him training using push ups in old school basements and barns in the winter etc. Great stuff!
In this post we will look at what muscles are worked by push ups and how to use push ups to build muscle. I have also provided some cool YouTube videos to act as demonstrations.

The Ultimate List Of Bodyweight Exercises
Chest bodyweight exercises are an awesome way to build up those pecs with your home workouts.
I love push ups and all the variations and I find that I can give myself an excellent chest workout without lifting weights from the comfort of my own home. I always feel an awesome adrenaline pump throughout the chest after completing a short and intense push up workout.
