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.

*Edit: I’ve had a few people ask me what Dips are and how to do them so I’m including a few photos of different variations. The main points to keep in mind when doing dips are to keep your core tight and DON’T let your shoulders sink.
Tricep Dips can be done from the floor, an exercise ball, a weight bench or from a chair – basically any surface that will support you. Keeping your core tight, with your elbows behind you, BEND from the elbows and lower your body – do not lower from the core, it should always be tight and stable – and lift back up to starting position. Repeat as per the Challenge.

EDIT* Have had a question on how to proper leg lifts (ie, from the side, from a flat back) so I’m posting a photo sample to help with the visual.
