What Pushup Is Best For Your Pecs. Your pectorals, or chest muscles, are divided into two sections: Keep your shoulders back and squeeze your pecs together at the top of the motion.
It's your abs and triceps you feel working in overdrive, showed a study published in a 2006 issue of dynamic medicine. But if you really want to make your pecs pop, change up your hand positions. Pause and contract the pecs against the extra resistance that the kettlebells provide at the bottom range.
This is where your feet are elevated on a chair or your couch and your hands are on the floor.
By blending several of these approaches into a single workout, you wind up challenging your pecs in multiple ways. The best upper chest exercise to do at home is the decline pushup. The decline pushup is an advanced version of the basic push up which includes placing your feet higher than your hands. Pause and contract the pecs against the extra resistance that the kettlebells provide at the bottom range.
