I had a friend text me just to let me know how hard push-ups were. And like a good friend, I decided her press her to keep pushing, and let her know I support her in her push-up endeavors. Doing push-ups in good form is a challenge. When done right, you are activating your upper body, whole core, even your glutes.
When mastering a task that is hard for you, break it down into manageable chunks. Do not think you’ll master this feat over night. Give yourself 4-6 weeks to see improvement and measure against YOURSELF ONLY!! No comparative fitness!!
For this challenge we will be aiming for push-ups 3 days a week. Each push-up day will have 3 sets of 10 push-ups, changing up the type of push-up each day. My push-up days this month will be Tues (reg), Thur (wide), Sun (tricep). If those days don’t work for you, create your own schedule. Just keep it on 3 separate days during the week. And in addition to the rest of your fitness program.
Any good fitness program works THE WHOLE BODY. I make sure that I am working my upper and lower body; that I’m working the front and back of my body; that I’m working on strength, functionality, and cardio; and I meditate and read (listen to) books for mental growth and health. Here’s a look at my fitness routine as a skeleton. I didn’t write down that I do at least 1 mile a day bc that would get redundant as it is daily and unchanging.
