200 Push-Ups…Such a great workout…except for it sucks.

Sorry, another arm workout, but I’m trying to get my arms toned for my sister’s wedding!!!!! I’m so excited! I can’t even contain it! So this seems like a pretty boring workout, but it’s so painful that it can’t be boring. Sounds awesome, right?! Haha well I thought it was. Best part is you can do this anywhere! You just need 100 feet of space for the running portion. You can do it right out in your yard and run down the driveway, at a park, at a large gym, around a track, in the woods…ya get the picture. So lace up and let’s go!

There is a 20 minute time cap, try to Make sure you pace yourself. Don’t go all out right from the beginning and do all the push-ups you can in your first round. Do a smaller number so that your arms aren’t completely spent right from the beginning. This is a HUGE number of push-ups, make sure you work up to it. Do this workout with 75 push-ups, really listen to your body.

Correct Way To Do a Push-Up:

Push-ups are actually a great whole body exercise. They should be working your abs and back if you are doing them correctly. When you are doing the push-ups try to keep your elbows in close not poking too far out to the side. Also, keep your body straight, don’t sag in your back! Hand should be pointed forward with your fingers slightly spread. Do not keep the weight in the back of your hands.

Good Luck! I just barely finished the 200 in 20 minutes. I had about half a second to spare. Get those arms workin!

Happy Veterans Day!

Veterans Day was first named Armistice Day and was established after World War 1. Fighting during the ‘Great War’ ceased when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. And so, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 as Armistice Day. Armistice Day was then reformed to celebrate all veterans, not just those that died in World War 1. The first national celebration occurred in 1947. Congress amended the act in 1954, replacing Armistice with Veterans, and November 11 been known as Veterans Day ever since.

In honor of Veteran’s Day, today’s workout is from an Ensign in the US Navy.Veteran'sDayStart with the push ups, flip over and go right into the sit ups. Travel all the way up the pyramid and back down for a total of 100 push ups and sit ups. Enjoy!

Thank you Veterans, and those serving, we appreciate everything you do!
