🔥 Decline Push Ups & Incline Push Ups
💥 Decline push-ups – can be used to target specific areas of the breast or to add variety to a regular workout program. Depending on the position of your body relative to the horizon, you can increase or decrease the load compared to classic push-ups.
🔥 Decline Push Ups
In fact, push-ups with raised legs are an inverted version of the bench press with a positive inclination. At the same time, the upper part of the chest is accentuated. More specifically, the load distribution looks like this:
- pectoral muscles (emphasis on the upper part);
- deltoid muscles (front bundles);
- press and back muscles work in statics.
The wider we put our hands, the more actively the chest, especially the external part, works, the narrower – the greater the load on the triceps. With a narrow statement of the hands load, which still gets chest, is shifted to their inner part.
🔥 Incline Push Ups
🚨 This type of push-ups is well suited for beginners, for whom the classic version of the exercise is still difficult.
Why do this light version do we need, ask you? The answer is simple – the exercise perfectly engages the lower part of the pectoral muscles. Therefore, if for some reason this area is lagging behind you, you can purposefully work on its development. So that life at the same time does not seem honey – we take the burden in the form of a backpack or vest.
- The load distribution is as follows:
- Pectoral muscles (emphasis on the lower part);
🚨 Abdominal muscles, back and legs are under static stress.
