The 30 Day Push-Up Challenge - Broad shoulders, muscular arms and a chest to dream about!

Hey guys,

According to Wikipedia, the current world record for most push-ups in 24 hours is by Charles Servizio (USA) who achieved 46,001 push-ups in just 21 hours, 6 minutes on 1993, April 24 to 25.

This is very, very impressive, but, fortunately, we don't have to do that much to get ready for the summer...

While the push-up primarily targets the muscles of the chest, arms (triceps) and shoulders, support required from other muscles results in a wider range of muscles integrated into the exercise (e.g. the core muscles).
So you can see that push-ups are very suitable ( for both genders) to get in shape for the board short and bikini session.

After we worked on our hot butts and legs through the 30 day squat challenge last time, let's start with a new 30 day challenge today: The 30 Day Push-Up Challenge

Day 1: 40 push-ups
Day 2: 45 push-ups
Day 3: 50 push-ups
Day 4: REST
Day 5: 55 push-ups
Day 6: 60 push-ups
Day 7: 65 push-ups
Day 8: REST
Day 9: 70 push-ups
Day 10: 75 push-ups
Day 11: 80 push-ups
Day 12: REST
Day 13: 85 push-ups
Day 14: 90 push-ups
Day 15: 95 push-ups
Day 16: REST
Day 17: 100 push-ups
Day 18: 105 push-ups
Day 19: 110 push-ups
Day 20: REST
Day 21: 115 push-ups
Day 22: 120 push-ups
Day 23: 125 push-ups
Day 24: REST
Day 25: 130 push-ups
Day 26: 135 push-ups
Day 27: 140 push-ups
Day 28: REST
Day 29: 145 push-ups
Day 30: 150 push-ups

The "rules" are pretty simple:
- Either you do all the demanded push-ups of the day in a row or you break them down in multiple sets (as many sets as necessary) over the day.
- You can choose the kind of push-ups that you prefer (even Wall Push-Ups are ok). But I recommend...

Full Push-Ups

 
 
or Kneeling Push-Ups
 
 


Join us if you want to! Summer is still approaching and sexy chests as well as toned arms and broad shoulders will make you feel awesome wearing a tee/bikini top or walking/lying at the beach topless!

Cheers,
Andi
