Push-ups remain the simple and efficient basic exercise to carry out at home, with a minimum amount of equipment, in other words none at all!

Generally, push-ups work the triceps and the anterior deltoids.
The "basic" push-ups work the middle pectorals.
The upper pectorals can be worked by placing the feet on a chair. In this case, avoid moving the head in extension, the forehead should just be touching the ground.

The sixth exercise described works the lateral deltoids and the triceps. The pectorals are not at all concerned.
The last two focus more on the dorsals.

In all cases, breathe out when extending the arms.
