The last year has been crazy for me and although I still train martial arts once or twice a week, I have felt my body getting softer and weaker. My biggest issue is time. Trips to the gym or long runs are not an option for me. I need to find a way to get quick workouts in throughout the day without affecting my work or home life. So, I'm going to commit to one simple exercise for the next few weeks and go from there. But that's just my story. I suspect many of my fellow RMers might have similar stories. I'm hoping some of you will join me but if not that's ok too. I'm going to do 100 push ups per day for 30 days. Push ups are a great way to get stronger, feel more confident, and open pathways to a healthier lifestyle. You can do them anywhere and space them out however you need to. Depending on your current fitness/strength level, this should only take between 3 and 15 minutes out of your entire day. If you've been putting off exercise for a myriad of reasons, this is a great opportunity for you. Do a before/after selfie for motivation if you need to. Time yourself if that helps. Post in here that you performed the day's 100 push ups, and do so for all 30 days, and I'll personally send you a prize.

here's proper form and some helpful tips to get you started.

Image

notice the straight line from heels to head. your entire core should feel engage at all times, careful not to sink your crotch to the ground or lift your butt in the air. elbows should be close to the ribs when in the "down" position. eyes should look forward to prevent the head from sinking with fatigue and cheating through reps.

Image

OPTIONAL, but a great way to prevent bad form or cheating. it also works the upper back muscles and stretches the chest and arm muscles. include this step if you need to slow it down and work on form or when you become fatigued.

Image

arms fully extended, shoulders protracted, straight line from heels to head. keep the core tight through the entire range of motion.

Image

let me know if you want your name in the hat for the end-of-challenge prize. I'm designating $100 to the prize pot. So if 20 of you make it, the prizes will obviously be smaller, whereas a single challenge-conqueror will get one awesome prize!

We will start in a few days to give infrequent posters a chance to "sign up".

i wanted to pick something simple and effective. you've been dealing with back pain yeah? good way to tighten up your core, strengthen the chest and back, and prevent further injury.

you've probably been cheating your way through them your entire life anyway. if 100 is too easy (i doubt it?), then focus on improving the reps by extending your shoulders forward on the up and keeping EVERYTHING tight on the down. clinch your buttcheeks.

It wouldn’t be money, it would be a prize.

I’ll even mail it right to you door.

I just need your address.

100 is part of my routine every time I do weight training. I break every 20-25 reps.

I didn't delete it. I can't do them terribly easily.
