November Challenge: 100 push-ups
That’s right, we said 100 push-ups!
Before you get right to it, let’s go over some basics & some tips to help us all conquer this month’s challenge.
How to master the form:
Engage your whole body. Yes- in a proper push up we are working everything from legs, to glutes, core, back, to shoulders.
Be certain to keep your wrists stacked directly under shoulders.
Elbows at 45 - not too tight, not too wide.
Keep your body in a straight line throughout the lower & lift: hips don’t drop or raise out of line.
Be sure to keep a steady pace. Inhale as you lower, exhale as you raise.
Options on form:
Knees down. Toes up.
With the above two variations, be careful to keep your body in a straight line with wrists under shoulders, and lower hips.
Feet wide. This will help keep your shoulders & hips steady.
100 push-ups is no easy task.
Work in sets. No amount of sets is too many. Just be sure to work up to that 100 each time.
^ and hey, a fun playlist, podcast, or even some Netflix never hurts to go along.
