Negative Push-up

Start in standard push-up position then go down as slowly as possible (aim for 6-10 seconds). Go back up in an explosive manner. The negative (down) phase will activate more muscle fibers than a regular push-up, reducing the elasticity of the move. Do 3 sets of 6-8 reps.

Pros:
  • Awesome upper body builder (shoulders, triceps, pectorals).
  • Good core work-out.
  • Can be done anywhere.
Cons:
  • none
