This week’s Ed Tech Fitness Challenge might be the most challenging one so far. The challenge is to do 20 push-ups a day with perfect form. You don’t need to do them all at once. Feel free to spread them out over the course of the day in sets of 5, 10, or whatever works for you. The important thing is to use proper form. When done with proper form, a push-up will engage arm, back, chest, and abdominal muscles.
This video provides an excellent overview of how to a push-up with proper form. The great thing about this video is that it also includes how to do a modified push-up with good form. The modified push-up is the way to go if you’re just starting out.
As always, feel free to modify the challenge to meet your needs. If you’re already in great shape, challenge yourself with a few more push-ups per set. If you’re just getting started, maybe ten push-ups with perfect form is the goal for you.
If you haven’t said hi on the Ed Tech Fitness Flipgrid, please take a minute (literally) to say hello. It’s great to hear about what other people are working on and how they’re doing.
