You asked for it, and you got it – our Pushups Amplified Challenge will kicks off today!
This 3-week challenge will improve your strength and stamina in the most basic measure of upper body prowess – the pushup.
To light the fire of friendly competition, we’re going to make it a contest. You will be tested on June 5/6th to determine your starting pushup score, which is the number of good pushups completed in one set. After testing, you will be given structured pushup workouts to do for the next 3 weeks. You will be retested on June 27/28th to determine how much you’ve improved. Those who show the most improvement in each of our three divisions will win a prize.
Show us what ya got!
Perfect Pushup Movement Standards:
- Elbows locked at the top of each rep
