#22: Challenge of the week: plank to push up

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!

Plank to Push-up
There are many variations on the plank and the push-up. One of my personal favourites is the combination of the two. I like to add a little push-up to it as well, when I feel fit enough and have little time to work out. The ideal thing of this exercise is, that you can both do a certain number of them, or just set a timer and add it to your circuit, so you won’t have to count in any way and just let the buzzer do the work for you. Enjoy!

But before you do this exercise, take a look at this useful video on how to do a proper basic plank and a proper basic push-up.
