Upper Body Strength Challenge 

This month let’s make moves together to strengthen our upper bodies. The exercise of the month is the old fashion push-up. The push-up is a traditional conditioning exercise that primarily works the triceps and the mid section as a whole. 

To perform the push up place your body in a tight plank position initially on your toes, you then begin raising and lowering the body using your arms. 

Please be mindful that everyone’s performance level of the push-up will be different, and that is ok because we all have to start somewhere. So if you are not ready to perform the push-up on your toes you can work the same muscles with an elevated push-up and progress to your toes, or push-up from your knees with the ultimate goal being push-ups from your toes. 


 Week 1=10 push-ups a day 

 Week 2= 15 push-ups a day

 Week 3= 20 push-ups a day 

 Week 4= 25  push-ups a day 

3 Key Keepers  

1. Keep it  “tight”, to include your torso, glutes, and abs.  

2. Keep your head slightly up. 

3. Keep your elbows close to your body.
