Last month we focused on doing 50 kettlebell swings per day as a way to make sure we did some form of movement everyday during January.
This month we are going to focus on building upper body strength with the Push-Up!
Personalize the Challenge
Push-ups can be made as easy or as hard as you make them. That being said, with proper form the push up will not only increase your upper body strength, it will develop core strength as well.
If you are just starting out try a wall push-up and brace yourself against a wall or other sturdy surface, an incline push-up with your hands hands on a chair/stool, stair tread or other elevated surface, or a knee push-up on a flat surface.
On the other side of the coin, if the traditional push-up movement has become routine, there are several other variations that can be done to increase the difficulty. Spider-Man push ups, decline or feet elevated push-ups, or push ups with shoulder taps are a great way to stay engaged.
- 100 Push Ups per day for the month of February – remember this is about building a habit so work this into your daily schedule.
- Tag ForceFit (@the_fit_force) on Facebook or Instagram that you have accepted the challenge – at the end of the month, we are going to be selecting one person and give away free swag! Make sure you use the #hashtag #forcefitstrong.
