Push-ups are hands down one of my favorite moves to incorporate into my workouts. Push-Ups don’t just work your chest and perk up yours boobs, they tone the whole body. A pushup primarily works the chest but it also tones and strengthens your triceps, shoulders, lower legs, and abs.
There is a beginner or a more advanced option to choose from in this challenge. In the beginner challenge, you will start at 3 pushups and work your way to 20 consecutive. The second option you will start at 8 Push-Ups and move up to 40. To improve your strength even further try do multiple sets two days a week. For example on Mondays and Fridays, do 2-3 sets of pushups. Remember, keep your body tight and move through the movements slowly.
