Week 2: 10 pushups a day
It’s an oldie but a goodie: the pushups hits several muscle groups (core, back, chest, arms) to help build up upper body and functional strength – so don’t sleep on it! The key to knocking out a quality set of pushups is:
- Take your time: don’t rush each rep
- Straighten up: whether you’re doing them on your knees or on your toes, make sure your hips, neck and head are in a straight line (think of a push-up as a moving plank). Your hips will be tempted to drop down, but remember to keep them tight and lifted
- Check your hands: these should be shoulder-width apart, or a little bit wider. As you lower down, your elbows should be at a 45-degree angle. Keep your fingers spread out, with your middle fingers pointing toward 12 o’clock.
