The 50 push-up challenge we have for you today will transform your body in just under a month. It involves planks and push-up variations which can target specific muscle groups and areas on your body and help you slim down quickly. The push-up variations will target your back, chest and core muscles and tighten them up quickly, resulting in a nicely toned body.
Here’s what you should do:
The first week is essentially a warm up period that will help you prepare for the long road ahead. Do the push-ups with your shoulder blades aligned with the glutes and upper back and engage your glutes while drawing your abs and keeping your hips from going up. You also need to remember to breathe deep during the exercise.
During the second week you will certainly relish the challenge. Continue doing the push-ups anytime and anywhere to continue building the muscles and you will surely notice the first results.
During the third week, you should increase the number of push-ups you’re doing. The third week is also seen as a crisis week as the intensity is higher and the push-ups are becoming a real challenge. Don’t quit, though – just continue doing what you’ve been doing so far and you will see the results.
You should be aiming even higher in the last week, but it should be easier to do the push-ups during this time. Breathing is key during the fourth week, so make sure to inhale deeply when going down and exhale while going up. Focusing on your breathing will make you forget about the pain and burning in your muscles.
Last 2 days
If you can’t do 50 push-ups in a day, make them in 2 separate sessions (25 per set). However, going for 50 will make you really proud, so we suggest going for it. After you complete the challenge, you will improve your posture and build up your muscles, while also strengthening the core.
Congrats! You’ve completed the challenge!
