Trying to keep up with the latest trends and fads in the fitness industry can be a full time job these days, and a stroll through a modern fitness centre is often like a trip to another planet. Some of the new high tech, space age equipment looks as if it would require an engineer to operate. Unless you are a professional athlete or have a lot of free time this can be quite an overwhelming experience. While there is no doubt these high tech machines can serve a purpose, it can often be just as effective to keep it simple and stick to the basics. For those who are training in martial arts and looking to do some supplementary strength training often times a much simpler work out will suffice.

One of the most underrated, underused, and yet incredibly effective exercises is the old fashioned pushup. Pushups work out almost all the muscles in the upper body and core, and can be performed anywhere at anytime. If you get bored with the standard pushup, there are around 100 pushup variations that can be mixed in. For those who are pressed for time and looking to get in a quick workout, pushups are your best friend. Just because it is simple doesn’t mean it isn’t every bit as effective as the most high tech machine on the market.
