26 Problems But a Push Up Ain’t One

Today we are going to do 26 push ups, broken up into 4 sets.

Here’s your workout for today:

Warm up 3-5 minutes (walk in place, do jumping jacks, jog up and down the hall)

Perform 4 sets of push ups as follows (with a 15 second rest in between each set):10 push ups

  • 6 push ups
  • 8 push ups
  • 10 push ups
  • 2 push ups

Feel free to continue with the Modified version, Military-style or add some “sass” by turning each push up into a 2-count push up.download (2)

2-Count Push Ups

Normally you perform push ups in a cadence; think 2 beats down and 2 beats up in a fluid motion without stopping.

A 2-count push up is when you stop completely half-way down, holding for a beat before continuing down to the bottom of your push up.  (We are stopping the momentum of the push up, which will help increase endurance.)

When you perform the “up” part, push the way to the top in one fluid motion.

Have a great workout.

Now go run!
