I was lifting with a friend of mine at his house and he had just bought a new twelve hundred dollar work out machine, it was supposed to do upper body strengthening and ab workouts. I said to him "Why don't you just do pushups?" Pushups do your arms, your chest and your abs. It's one of the best workouts and adding a simpel clap to it can make it so much better. Does anyone here find that simple workout methods like pushups and situps are much better then complicated work out machines?
