The press up or push up exercise is a staple of fitness ability, being used in testing within police and military forces throughout the world, and for good reason too.
It's an excellent way to test an individuals overall strength because it relies on many components of fitness, muscular strength from shoulders, arms, chest with core stability, joint range of motion especially at the elbow and shoulder. It's also a metabolic exercise as it gets multiple muscle groups activating and will require good cardiovascular efficiency and capacity. Amazing really! that's why many personal trainers love this exercise and why is a fundamental test of strength and fitness.
You can start at your own level and ability, starting with a standing wall press up onto a half press up and a full press up. There are also harder progressions such as a decline press up, 3 point press up and more.
