It’s officially the start of week 3 for most of you. How did everyone do with week 2? Did you find that it got easier as the week went on? I found that the planks got easier as the week went on but the push ups were still rather challenging if I didn’t take much of a break between the sets. I was however able to mix in a few different style of push ups as the week went on with the sets. Since the diamond push ups were in no way easier then the regular push ups…that may have played a role in my exhaustion and muscle fatigue.

Tips for Week 3

  1. If you have been doing the challenge at the beginning of your workout try doing it at the end.
  2. Try really hard to go all the way down on each push up
  3. During both the plank and the push up be mindful of your neck if you have a tendency to tuck it under and watch your feet. This will help with your form and breathing!
  4. If you always start with the pushups first start with the plank and vice versa.
  5. DON’T GIVE UP!

Yesterday was supposed to be my off day but since it was soooo gorgeous out I couldn’t resist a good run from Queens to the west side!
