Hello, my name is Robert Brace, Celebrity Fitness Trainer and Creator of The 28-Day Challenge - Total Body Transformation DVD System and you can get it at the28daychallenge.com. I'm here for eHow and what we're going to talk about is pull-ups versus push-ups. These two great body weight exercises work totally different muscle groups separately, but together, they can be a great great upper body workout. Let's star with the push-up. The push-up is one of the greatest exercises in my opinion. As you do the push-up, you're working your chest, your pectorial muscles, you're working your shoulders and you're working your triceps. And to support your body, your core has to be fully engaged. So, again, the push-up, the chest, the triceps, shoulders and core engagement. Now, you look at the pull-up and you're working your back, your biceps and your core. As you pull your chest up to the bar, your back is fully engaged, your biceps are engaged and you have to use your core to keep everything together. You put those two things together, you get a chest workout, a tricep workout, shoulder workout, back workout, bicep workout and core. It's a fantastic combination for a total upper body workout.
