The rectums abdominal and transverses abdominal contract continually while performing push-ups to hold the body off the floor and keep the legs and torso aligned. The rectums abdominal spans the front of the abdomen and is the most prominent of the abdominal muscles. The transverses abdominal lies deep within the abdomen, wrapping around the entire abdominal area. Both muscles compress the abdomen, and the rectums abdominal also flexes the spine forward, although it does not execute this function when performing push-ups.

The anterior portion of the Deloitte muscle is one of the major shoulder-joint horizontal abductors, moving the upper arms toward the chest during the upward phase of a push-up. It also helps control the speed of movement during the downward phase. The Deloitte attaches to parts of the clavicle and scapula, just above the shoulder joint on one end, and to the outside of the humerus bone on the other. Along with horizontal addiction, the anterior Deloitte assists with flexion and internal rotation of the humerus within the shoulder socket.
Beside Chest Muscles the Deloitte is the muscle that you will feel the most

Chest Muscles
The push-up requires many muscle groups, but the primary muscle groups are the chest muscles, the pectorals major and minor. These are the two large chest muscles and mainly the pushing muscle group of the upper body. When pushing and lowering the body during a push up, the pectorals major is doing most of the work. As a result, these muscles become very strong and can become defined lean muscle after doing push-ups regularly.

Stabilizers include wrist and forearm muscles, the knee extensors, and the hip/spine floors which all work isometrically to maintain a proper plank position in the standard prone push-up.

During the push-up exercise, the short head of the biceps brachii muscle acts as a dynamic stabilizer. This means the muscle activates at both ends—the elbow and the shoulder—to help stabilize the joints.
