Crazy push-up workout

Happy Monday Purely Fit Friends,

How was your weekend? Do anything fun or exciting? Learn anything new? You all know we were at the ACE symposium for a few days continuing our personal trainer education. We had a blast. All day yesterday we gathered all our notes.

Now onto today’s Move-it-Monday.

Get ready for your #purelyfitlife workout #33. Crazy to think we are already on #33!!  We have over a months worth of workouts on our youtube. No excuse to get bored, hehe 

We have a crazy heart pumping crazy push-up home workout for you to build up strength in your upper body.

We designed this workout with push-ups in mind. And a ton of them.

Push-ups are great for working the whole body if you’re doing it correctly.

Push-ups are one of our favorite body-weight exercises as you can make them easy or intense. We love how they really engage the full body.

Remember your form in doing push-ups is important. Keep your abs engaged, hands under shoulders in straight line, and neural spine. Breathe too. Curl your toes upward (towards your head). Keep your elbows close to your body for more resistance. Keep your head facing forward. Keep your body in a flat plank—do not drop your hips. Draw a breath as you lower yourself. Lower yourself down as your strength and fitness level allows. Breathe out as you push yourself up. Try to lower yourself in a steady pace, not too fast.

Push-ups are intense. They are great for working the whole body. Where you position your feet creates a different intensity level for the push-up.

This workout you will need some free weights. Or can use water bottles or can soups. This workout will focus on the upper body with the combination of strength and balance. Time for more one leg exercises.

Are you ready to push yourself outside your comfort zone with doing this crazy push-up workout?

Remember to give yourself a personal goal with this workout. Challenge yourself with trying to do regular push-ups. You can break them into 2 or 3 rep intervals but believe in yourself that you can do. See yourself doing it before starting!

Here is your workout breakdown:

We suggest:

  • A-fits (advanced peeps) :  Use moderate weight. Limit your breaks.
  • B-fits (beginner peeps):  Go at a slower speed, take breaks when needed. Use lighter weights. Also maybe try doing push-ups on a wall or at an incline on a bench or chair. You can do them on your knees but those other exercises will help get you to regular push-ups better.

Now come and workout with us 🙂 Get ready for some push-ups!

Say that to yourself doing this workout.  The more you say it the more you will believe it. You will leave this workout feeling empowered!

Twins question: Do you like push-ups? What is your favorite kind of push-up?

At the ACE we learned about 20 different ways to do a push-up. Some of them will take us a very long time to master.  Guess we better get to practicing 😉

I need to work on my pushups more. My upper body is really weak after not working out much the past few months. Pushups really do work so much!!

I love push ups. Whenver I don’t feel like working out in the morning I just tell myself “do 20 pushups and then you can finish”. By the time I’ve finished those 20 I almost always want to do more!
