Muscle building upper body workout with Elliot Burton

Muscle building upper body workout with Elliot Burton


If you’re looking for ways to split up your training sessions, a push-pull split is a great option. 

Not only does it promote muscular balance, but it makes sure your muscles have time to recover in between sessions, which can help to prevent injury.

So, what’s the difference between push and pull workouts? 

A push workout, like Elliot is doing here, primarily works your chest, triceps, quads, calves and shoulders. The workload comes when your muscle is lengthened. Examples might be the military press or squatsessentially any exercise where the load is being pushed away from your body. 

A pull workout is the opposite, meaning that the effort comes when the muscle is being shortened (or pulled towards the body). Pull exercises include pull-ups and deadlifts
