Push-up Challenge

PushupsHappy 1st day of August! To celebrate the start of a brand new month, I’m challenging you all to the 20 Push-ups a Day Challenge. It’s pretty simple – you commit to doing 20 push-ups a day for the next month. Easy peasy. You can do any variation, so modified push-ups are fine. Comment below “I’m in” or inbox me to let me know the challenge has been accepted – and away we go!!

Why Push-Ups? 

Push-ups are one of the basic and most common exercises for the human body.  They are great for your chest, and help defining your abs, triceps, shoulders, and torso.  They are an incredible exercise for overall strength improvement.

Push-ups can be performed no matter where you are and don’t require any equipment or gym. The benefits of push-ups are plentiful.  They will improve muscular endurance within the upper body, strengthen both muscles and bones, create lean muscle mass that raises your metabolism and, of course, help keep you fit and healthy.

Snow Workout

I’ve clearly been getting some extra cardio and strength workouts in this past week:

Yep - there's a car under there.  MY CAR!

Yep – there’s a car under there. MY CAR!

We had a major blizzard here in Nova Scotia (and other parts of the Maritimes) last weekend.  Obviously I was snowed in for a few days which means I had to cancel my classes and miss the gym.  So, on top of the crazy home workouts I did, I got to shovel a whole lot of snow.  Like, a whole lot.  A.TON!

Fortunately, the majority of the snow in the photo above was cleared by a plow but, as you can see, my car was almost completely buried and digging my way to clear a path to get to the car was a feat in its own.  I felt totally accomplished by the end.
