If you want to be able to increase your metabolism at any time of the day, month or year, no matter where you may happen to be, you must know at least 3 variations of the pushup. Why? Because a pushup involves your facial muscles, neck, chest, shoulders, arms, hands, wrists, core, pelvic musculature and legs. I suggest that you start with the standard-grip pushup, the narrow-grip pushup and the fist pushup. If you do not have the strength to complete a pushup in the normal position, then complete a knees-down version. Switch between the standard grip and narrow grip to incorporate different
muscle groups in the chest, shoulders and arms. Use the fist pushup when your wrists are tired or when you don’t want to get your fingers too familiar with a germ-ridden surface. Here’s a good starting point: three times a day complete the maxi-mum number of pushups that you can perform. Throw this habit into your next vacation or long day at work and you’ll be guaranteed a burst in your metabolic rate.
Have a great weekend SPARKERS!!!!
