A push-up is a common calisthenics exercise beginning from the prone position. By raising and lowering the body using the arms, push-ups exercise the pectoral muscles, triceps, and anterior deltoids, with ancillary benefits to the rest of the deltoids, serratus anterior, coracobrachialis and the midsection as a whole. Push-ups are a basic exercise used in civilian athletic training or physical education and commonly in military physical training. They are also a common form of punishment used in the military, school sport, and some martial arts disciplines. The pushup technique is the ideal workout for increasing upper body and core strength. It's a compound workout that works the chest, the shoulders, triceps, back, stomach, and more.

I agree. When it comes to calisthenics, I think pushups are the main event. I also consider the bench press to be the main event at the gym.

If there was ever motivation to have the right weight for your body type, it is the pushup.
