We recently published Arnold Schwarzenegger’s training program, which involves training all major muscle groups, but it’s hard to imagine good physical shape without abs.

In this article, we will focus on home press training and talk about four exercises for training the press at home, which will help you get a relief press without going to the gym.

There are a huge number of different techniques for training the abs, but in this article, we will talk about the four most effective exercises for the press that can be performed at home.

Before proceeding directly to the exercises, I would like to remind you that the abdominal muscles, like other muscles, are under the layer of subcutaneous fat, and the layer of subcutaneous fat in the abdomen is usually much larger than elsewhere. So, even if the abdominal muscles are very well developed, but the level of subcutaneous fat is high, you are unlikely to see the cubes on the abdomen.

Therefore, if you still want to achieve the coveted cubes on the abdomen, then press training should be combined with the process of burning fat (low-carbohydrate diet, the use of various fat burners, etc).

It is also important to note that the abdominal muscles work during any exercise and even while walking, so if you want to get the most out of your workouts, don’t forget to rebuild your abdominal muscles. We recommend training the press 2-4 times a week, as well as increasing the amount of protein you need to rebuild muscle (you can use whey protein or amino acid complexes for this purpose).

You can now proceed directly to the exercises.
