The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    Will push ups tone up my flabby chest ?

    I have a little fat on my chest and I'm meaning to burn it off. I do a normal three day split:

    Mon - Legs, Shoulders
    Wed - Chest, Back
    Fri - Arms, Abs

    I'm wondering wheather doing 200 push ups a day on top of this will help tone up my chest quicker. Will I just be gaining more strength indurance and not mass ? Also should I being doing cardio and how much ?

    Should give you an idea on what toning is or isn't. If you are still unsure use the search and you'll find plenty of discussions on the myths/misconceptions of the concept of toning.

    Yeah, uh...your wrong. By "toned" I am assuming you mean a defined chest. Doing pushups won't get you a defined chest, but getting your BFP down will. Definition usually comes from diet.

    You cant make your muscles grow outside your fat..the fat will always be on top unless you change diet and do a lot of cardio..

    If you're not already doing cardio, I would recommend starting with 3, 20 or 30minute sessions a week. Watch your diet and train hard with the weights trying to increase your lifts every time. There's no need at all for the pushups.
