Are you up for this? I’m obsessed with push ups as of late. Push ups, in my mind, are one of those “bad ass/fit chick exercises.” When I complete a set of pushups, I feel unstoppable and am just so proud of my own strength. You know?!
I wanted to test myself when I constructed this workout… and a true test of physical and mental strength it is.
First off, don’t be discouraged by the workout. It looks tough. It is tough.
The goal is to push yourself outside of your comfort zone. I wrote this workout and said to myself, “okay, there’s no way I can complete this many push ups. I should think of and suggest a modification.”
Then, I thought… wow, I basically constructed an excuse and a Plan B for myself before I even went for it. What type of mentality is that in life?!
I worked up the courage and confidence… and completed every rep.
Now, I’ll be honest… I had to rest more than suggested. This workout took me longer that I anticipated. I wanted to prove to myself that I could complete this push up challenge so I did what I had to do (rest, stretches, shake out the arms, get water during a set) to do so.
Good luck! I can’t wait to hear how great you do with this push up challenge workout!
Also, if this push up challenge just seems too advanced for you (don’t worry – we’ve all been there! Truly! I started being able to complete like maybe 2 push ups!) OR if you’re looking to just improve your push up gave, check out THIS mini push up plan I put together.
