Monthly Challenge :: Push (Up) Your Way to a Perfect Chest

Share
Ever wondered how you sculpt the perfect chest and front of your shoulders at home? No worries, we are here to help! All you need for the Push (Up) Your Way to a Perfect Chest Challenge is yourself and a bench or elevated platform - you can even use a stair!


For the purposes of the challenge, we define the following:
Almost-There Push Up - Arms directly under shoulders, straight line from head to behind, core engaged and pulled in, utilizing knees
Push Up - The Classic Push Up - Arms directly under shoulders, straight line from head to behind to feet, core engaged and pulled in
Incline Push Up - Hands on elevated platform, arms directly under shoulders, straight line from head to behind to feet, core engaged and pulled in
Decline Push Up - Arms directly under shoulders, straight line from head to behind to feet, core engaged and pulled in, feet on elevated platform

Now here's the challenge:


Note: If you can do a "Classic" Push Up, challenge yourself to replace the Almost-There Push Ups with regular Push Ups.

Good luck and we will be checking in with you soon to see how it's going!

Note: Please do not begin any workout routine before consulting a physician to ensure you are healthy enough to exercise.

    1. It's an easier version of the push up, where you kneel instead of elongating your whole body.

  4. Do I do all the push ups on the given day? Or is it week based?

  5. The plank challenge says that it is meant to be a supplement in addition to your normal workout. Is that the case for this push up challenge as well?
