For the month of June there is a challenge of completing 1200 push ups in a month. You can break up the reps how every you would like. For example 40 push ups a day will get you to 1200 push ups by the end of the month, you can complete 20 push ups in the morning and 20 push ups at night, what it ever it takes for you to complete 1200 push ups by the end of June. Another option, do 60 push ups every week day and rest on the weekends, or just complete 300 in a week. Best part about this is that even if you can’t make it into the gym it easily can be done at home, work, vacation. No excuses!
Feel free to hold your self and peers accountable by posting a video of your push ups tagging your friends and family using the hashtag #nela1200 #justshowup
The push-up is a great exercise to develop upper-body pressing strength. It enhances core and hip flexor strength and develops shoulder stability. The push-up has more variations than any other exercise. Through various progressions the intensity and difficulty of the exercise can be increased.
