#19: Challenge of the week: Push ups

I like to give myself a weekly challenge in order to stay motivated. There are 7 levels for every challenge, so everyone can join in. Feel free to modify the challenges so they fit your personal needs. Remember always to listen to your body, don’t push yourself too hard but keep moving. Doing only these challenges is not a balanced way to get or stay fit. If you have doubts about exercises, or your body, always ask a specialist for advice!

Rotational Push ups!
As I said before, I like muscular arms a lot. This one is one of my favourite exercises, they make the world of push ups a lot more interesting. A thing that is really important with this one, is to keep your form. If you still have problems with full blown push ups, it is okay to go from your knees, but make sure that you don’t twist your knees in weird positions when reaching for the sky.

level 1: 50 reps
level 2: 100 reps
level 3: 150 reps
level 4: 200 reps
level 5: 250 reps
level 6: 350 reps
level 7: 500 reps
