Chest exercises “the bench”:

If you want to build and expand the chest muscle at home without tools, you must do a lot of push-ups. The most important and most effective of these forms in operating the chest muscle:

Correct way to perform:


1- Start in the plank position, but with your hands on the floor at the level of the lower chest, and slightly wider than the width of your shoulder.

2- Tighten your abdominal and buttock muscles throughout the exercise.

3- Try to keep the elbow next to the body, not outward.
4- Keeping your body straight, slowly descend, then return to the starting position.

The pushup exercise is one of the most important chest muscle exercises, and it also activates more than one muscle (chest, triceps, front shoulder, abdomen), so try to get used to the correct performance of the exercise, then you can increase the difficulty by increasing the number of repetitions, or decreasing Rest period between sets. In the beginning, try to do 3 sets, each set 15 reps, and a minute and a half rest between each set.

2- WIDE-GRIP PUSHUPS:

Do the same pushup but with your hands wider than shoulder width. This exercise with the position of the hands thus activates the chest muscles more than the traditional pushup exercise. Do 3 sets, 15 reps each, and rest for a minute and a half between each set.

If you have any problem or previous shoulder injury avoid this exercise.

3- DECLINE PUSHUPS:

Arm exercises:

It is difficult to operate the biceps muscle directly without weights or body weight, but the chin-ups exercise will work the muscles of the back and biceps, but this exercise works the biceps muscle more than the traditional pull-up exercise. As for the triceps muscle, the Dips exercise is one of the best exercises that you can perform at home without tools, all you need is a chair or a stool.

The squats exercise is the basic exercise for developing and building the muscles of the leg. Do 3 sets, each set 12 reps, and a minute and a half rest between each set. If the exercise is easy for you, increase the repetitions, reduce the rest period between sets to 45 seconds, or hold anything that has weight in your home while you perform the exercise. If you suffer from knee problems, try not to bend your knees too much, and if the exercise is too painful for you to perform, stop and consult a specialist.

Abdominal Exercises:

There are a lot of exercises for the abdominal muscles, but we will show you 2 of the basic exercises that work most of the abdominal muscles, and you can easily perform them at home without the need for weights.

2- Lean on your elbow instead of your hands, and raise your body.

3- Tighten your abdominal muscles and buttocks muscles, and keep your body posture straight.

4- Maintain your body position for 30-60 seconds.
The plank exercise is one of the basic exercises that any athlete should perform, because it works to strengthen the core muscles responsible for the stability of the entire body. In addition, it relieves back pain and improves the position of the body when sitting and standing. Try to avoid dropping your waist while performing the exercise. If the exercise is easy for you and you can do it for longer than a minute and a half, raise one foot and do the exercise on one foot.

2- CRUNCHES:

Correct way to perform:


1- Lie on the floor with your knees bent, and your feet on the ground.

2- Place your hands on either side of your head, and push your lower back to the floor.

3- Raise your shoulders and upper body by tightening your abdominal muscles, while keeping your lower back on the floor.

4- Return to the starting position slowly, and repeat the movement.

The Crunches exercise is one of the most popular exercises to tighten and shape the abdominal muscles, and it does not need any tools to perform it. Just be careful not to raise your lower back from the ground, and perform the exercise slowly because performing the exercise quickly will not operate the muscles as required. Make sure that the movement comes by tightening the muscles in your abdomen and not from the movement of your head or neck, because this may lead to injury. If you have any neck or back problems, avoid this exercise.

To be able to build muscle, you must perform the previous exercises for each muscle two or three times a week, if you do not know how to organize your exercises throughout the week, read this article to get a complete program to amplify muscles at home without weights.
