#49: Challenge of the week: Hindu / Hindy 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!

Hindu Push-up
One of the basic exercises that everyone who trains with body weight, eventually does, is the push up. You might like them, you might not, but it will be an important part of your training, as it is a simple and effective way to strengthen your body. Since push-ups eventually might become boring if you just do push ups, I am happy with all the variety that you can bring into your push ups. This week I am going to master the Hindu Push-up. This one is new to me, so I am going to start on a level 2. Did you try this one before? If you feel this exercise is not working for you, try to replace it with the normal push up or the plank push-up transition.

level 1: 70 reps
level 2: 140 reps
level 3: 210 reps
level 4: 280 reps
level 5: 350 reps
level 6: 700 reps
level 7: 1000 reps
