Hands up if you’ve nodded along while gym-goers talk about a push/pull split, but never quite understood what that meant. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Push and pull exercises simply mean movements that predominantly involve a pushing motion or a pulling motion, respectively, while a push-pull workout plan normally refers to a gym routine that cycles through a push day, pull day and legs workout. 

Push and pull exercises can also be combined in the same workout, often as a superset, to help build size and strength evenly across your upper body.
