There’s a reason why push-ups are pretty much standard fare for militaries all over the world: It’s because they are extremely effective.  Although the major focus of push-ups are the arms and chest, almost every major muscle group in the body gets used when performing a push-up, giving the whole body a nice, holistically fit look. Aside from the arms and chest, the abdominals (6 pack), glutes (butt), quadriceps and upper back all receive a secondary workout when you do push-ups. So if you haven’t got the time to do targetted exercises to work these specific muscle groups, doing a reasonable number of push-ups each day should suffice. For a beginner, we recommend that you start by doing 3 sets of 15 reps each and work your way up from there increasing the number of reps by 10% each week.

Compound exercises—exercises that involve simultaneous use of multiple joints and muscle groups at the same time—such as push-ups are particularly effective at achieving this effect.
