Push-ups help build upper body strength. They work the triceps, pectoral muscles, and shoulders. They can also strengthen the lower back and core.
Robert’s advice is to alternate a lower body movement and whole body movement one day with an upper body movement and whole body movement the next day.
Day 1. Deadlift and burpee
Day 2. Press and thruster
Day 1. Squat and kettle bell swing
Day 2. Push-up and burpee
Continue this plan.
For each exercise, 3-5 sets of 5-20 repetitions (depending on skill level and comfort/familiarity with the movement), rest as needed.
