Want to elevate your pushup game? Try this compound progression—a combination of exercises that targets the same muscle group with a few different moves.
Each pushup variation in this progression will work your chest in a slightly different way. “You’ll have to fight through fatigue, but since you’re changing the challenge with each move, you can keep going,” says Andy Speer, creator of The Anarchy Workout—an intense new fitness DVD from Men’s Health that will help you melt fat in less than a month and a half.
“This will help you squeeze in a lot of muscle-building work in a short period of time,” Speer says.
Watch the video below to give this pushup progression a try. You may not be able to complete the whole thing the first time through, but after only a few workouts, you’ll notice serious improvements in your strength and size.
