It is one of the most effective ways to build strength and it directly highlights the muscles round your neck, chest, shoulders, and arms.


Doing 100 Push-Ups the Right Way

It may seem easier to do the push-ups but you have to do it the right way to get the gains from it. You would need to set up with your hands directly under your shoulders; and will need to squeeze the glutes. This will engage your core. Keep the fingers spread and tuck your chin in while maintaining flat position of your body, lower yourself to the ground then push up yourself.

Don’t forget about the elbows s that’s where you need to bend. When you are lowering your torso, try to go s down the floor s you can, then push yourself up. Remember, there’s no definite right way to do the push-ups as push-ups has different variants you can try. When you are doing 100 push-ups a day, you would definitely need to try different variations to keep yourself going. It would also help you to never quit.


Inclined Push-Ups

In this kind of variation, your feet are elevated, supported by a medicine ball, or benches. You can try small desks if you don’t have medicine balls but keep in mind the height of the objects. You can use park benches and if you are a gym-regular, you can use benches they have there. On that note, you would need to keep pre-workout secrets with you.


Spider-Man or Mountain Push-Ups

You can start in the normal push-up position, you would need to raise your right knee toward your right elbow then return it to normal position. You would then need to repeat this process on left side and then you can alternate them. It’s as if Spider-Man was climbing up the building, or like the one when someone is doing the mountain climbing, hence the name.


Judo Push-Ups

For this push-up, you would need to raise your back so that your back and legs form an inverted V-shape and then using the strength of the arms, you would glide your body down as if nose touching the ground and then you would lift you heads forward and up toward the sky to fully extend your arms. It’s a mixture of ancient Indian push-up.


Clapping and One-Handed Push-Ups

You would probably know instantly what is meant by these push-ups as you may already have tried them. You can inculcate these variations to keep it fun and test your strength.

The thing with 100 push-ups a day is to keep going. It is not easy, but if you keep doing it with these variations of push-ups then you will avoid the fatigue and monotony of doing one thing again and again. Practice makes it perfect and bear fruits.
