Push-Up Fitness Challenge

This challenge is simple + EFFECTIVE! The push-up is a foundational movement in strength training, and an exercise EVERYBODY can do. How many push-ups can YOU do continuously? Bonus points if you eventually add some resistance like some kiddos on your back. 

Remember that FORM IS EVERYTHING!

  •  Hands should be slightly outside shoulder-width apart at chest level.
  •  Feet should be hip-width apart and parallel to each other.
  • Hips should be in line with the shoulders, and the lower back should have a neutral curve.
  •  The head should be positioned so the ears are in line with the shoulders. Keep your chin lifted & don’t let your head drop.
  •  Engage that core.
  •  Inhale, get as close to the floor as possible. Exhale press straight back up.
  •  Repeat as many times as you can with good form.

Are straight leg push-ups too much? No worries at all! Just modify by doing your push-ups on an elevated surface, a wall, or feel free to bend your knees. I would rather you use good form and work up to increasing your intensity with time and practice.

If you practice these a little every day, YOU WILL GET STRONGER! Keep me posted with your progress
