Push-up Challenge

2 Basic Sets That Anyone Can Do

Push-up Challenge. Gaining size and strength in your chest and triceps doesn’t always mean you have to go to the gym and lift heavy weights. You can see results by simply staying at home and executing regular push-ups.

You don’t need to be able to perform a bunch of different push-up variations or advanced exercises, you just need to be able to perform a basic push-up.

Anyone can do this challenge and see great results. Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Do as many regular push-ups as you can until your arms won’t allow you to push your body back up anymore.

Step 2: Rest for approximately 2 minutes.

Step 3: Perform 1 ½ times the amount of push-ups you did in step 1.

Example: Let’s say in step 1 you completed 70 push-ups. For step 3 you will perform 105 push-ups without dropping down to your knees or quitting.

Push-up Challenge

Obviously you will not be able to successfully complete this challenge without resting. The point of this push-up challenge is to push yourself past your normal limit. Instead of dropping down to your knees to rest, stay up and catch your breath for a few seconds.

Example: Let’s say for step 3 you are able to get to 40  push-ups, but you are tired and you need a break. Instead of dropping down to your knees to rest, stay up, but feel free to move positions and/or raise your arms to give your body a break.

Do this when you start feeling like you have reached your limit. Change positions to rest your body for just a couple of seconds and then bust out a few more push-ups.

Push Through The Pain

Repeat this process of resting without dropping to your knees and doing a few push-ups until you have reached your number, which in this example would be 105 total push-ups.

Pushing yourself through your max amount of push-ups without completely resting your body is like forcing yourself to go the extra mile. This is how you see results. If you simply reach your max each time you wouldn’t see great improvement.

By pushing yourself past your max you are teaching your body to go further than it is accustomed to and past your limit. Not only will you see an increase in size, but your strength in your chest and triceps will see very noticeable improvement as well.
