Do push-ups build arm muscle?
I understand the push-ups build shoulder and chest muscles, but does it build arm muscle?
I'm sure they do, but not to the same extent as they build the shoulder and chest muscles which are the groups of the most focus of the exercise. But the arm muscles will get some of the benefit because you are using them and there is some weight and resistance being placed on them. It would be similar to laying on your back and pushing light dumbells up from your chest.
It does help build your biceps a bit yes, but for arms alone there are better exercises like tricep dips and other such things you can do using your body weight.
