This is a 10 week push up challenge that will increase your upper body strength, endurance, and build. the push up is the most versatile upper body exercise as it works the entire upper body including the core.
You will have a certain amount of push ups that you are complete each day out of the week. You don’t have to complete them consecutively as long as they are completed that day. For instance, if you have to complete a total of 10 for that day. You can do 2 in the morning, 4 at lunch, and finish the remaining 4 before bed…it doesn’t matter as long as you complete them that day! A week in this challenge consists of 5 consecutive days NOT 7! Your body needs time to recover.
For this challenge to be effective you MUST use proper form (see video) and complete the required repetitions. The challenge is as follows:
Week 1: 10 push ups a day
Week 2: 20 push ups a day
Week 3: 30 push ups a day
Week 4: 40 push ups a day
Week 5: 50 push ups a day
Week 6: 60 push ups a day
Week 7: 70 push ups a day
Week 8: 80 push ups a day
Week 9: 90 push ups a day
Final Week 10: 100 push ups a day
REMEMBER: A week is only 5 consecutive days!!
Be creative and get in a few here and there when you’re sitting around twiddling your thumbs. You will definitely notice a difference in your strength, build, and you will be able to knock out a lot more push ups in one go!
I’ll post a video 1 day out of each new week to show me completing the required number of reps that are required per day for that week. I’ll only do this up until week 3 and then I think you will get the point and can continue from then on. My week 1 video is posted in the intro video below:
Join me and good luck to us all!
