Heavy Breathing Pushups for Increased Muscle Size

Pushups are and have been an exercise that has
been done by athletes and fitness enthusiasts,
combat athletes, military, police, fireman, prisoners
etc. The reason is that pushups, even the basic pushup
has proven over time that it can change your life physically.

The pushup works almost the whole body. It’s a fat burner
as well as a lean muscle builder. I said before you find me
a man that practices the pushup daily and can do hundreds
and thousands you will find a physically fit man.

To get to a high number of pushups taxes the anaerobic
system pushing your body to work without oxygen not
allowing you to go very long without a short rest in
between it’s not like aerobics where you can go for an
hour like a jog it’s a heavy breathing exercise.

Explosive and Heavy breathing exercise that work many
muscles can activate HGH just like sprinting and squatting.

Years ago I did a workout with heavy breathing squats and
it was brutal. It was taking a weight you have a tough time
doing 10 reps and squeeze out 20 reps without taking the
bar off your shoulders, you would do 11 then take a few
breaths until you could do another rep and you would
continue until you hit 20 reps, it sucked. But it worked!

Pushups can be done the same way, do as many as you
can do; then rest. Take a few breaths, do a few more.

Than try half pushups and squeeze all you can until your
muscles no longer respond and you collapse. The problem
is most people won’t push through the exhaustion once
they get to where they can do only 2 or 3 more they are
done I would go for an extra 20!

As far as pushups NOT building size or big massive
bodybuilding muscle it might be because bodybuilders
take tons of supplements and steroids.

I don’t know anyone who took steroids and just trained
using their bodyweight so I can’t say whether it will help
but I can tell you that whether you train with weights or
your body weight the only way to gain mass is to take in
extra calories.

Not everyone is a genetic freak and has a massive
chest or legs. You have to work to your capability and
you natural gifts you can’t be like everyone else.

We can all improve, but we need to compete with ourselves
and do the best we can to build a strong healthy body.

I personally am no longer interested in bulking up I go for
the more athletic type of training and that’s what I try to
get through to most people, be athletic and lean not
overweight and slow.

For instance yesterday I took it easy and went for a walk
wearing an extra 50 lbs I live in a mountain town and walk
up hill after hill which is a workout by its self but I added in
500 pushups wearing the extra 50 lbs it was a nice workout
that took about an hour to finish walk and 500 pushups
