150 press ups every night before bed, in 2-3 attempts was normal routine for me as a little one. These days I like to save my energy for more important things like fun. I enjoy challenging myself!
These days I do more than I could have ever of possibly imagined by learning how to make my environment more physically demanding for an enhanced desired response to an adaptation. If like me you want greater strength maybe better shape to your upper body then press ups are great but you will adapt fast so here's how you can spice them up to keep your body guessing and progressing.
Adding medicine balls will help you get a deeper range of movement and the instability created whilst performing the press ups will give you extra strength.
Start with 2 medballs at hands, go from knees then gradually build up to going off toes. If you want a super challenge try 3 then 4 medballs (see pics).
MEDBALL PRESS UP PROGRAM
5 REPS, 5 SETS- Each set is to be performed as stated below.
1-3 MINS REST BETWEEN SETS- Don't start until you're well recovered.
Set 1- perform at your own pace
Set 2- focus on depth, nose to floor
Set 3- 5 secs down, 5 secs up
Set 4- 14 secs down, fast asap up

By then end of this routine you should be feeling pumped and mentally ready for more!
Here's to finding new strength,
