Welcome to Day 4 of the October Weight Loss Challenge!

When was the last time you did push ups?

How many push ups do you think you could do now?

Have you ever heard of wall push ups?

How many wall/regular push ups are you going to try to do?

The many benefits of doing push up are:

  • A good form of cardiovascular exercise
  • Builds upper body strength
  • The chest muscles that are strengthened can help alleviate sagging breasts
  • A regular routine of push up can prevent flabby arms
  • You can do push ups anywhere

Whether you are a beginner, advanced or somewhere in between, there is a push up for you.

 I admit its been awhile.  I really don't like to do them.   I have an arm blaster option on my elliptical and i will do that.

It has been about a year since my last push up.  :)

I think I could do a couple "girl" pushups.  I am going to try and do 10 push ups, regular!!!

The last time I did push ups was like two weeks ago, but I suck at them. I can do maybe 10 girly pushups. And no wall push ups lol.

I actually do wall push ups all the time. I know it's kind if weird, but it's my way to cool down when I'm getting too worked up about something.

I can do 10-15 girl push ups without stopping. I havent worked out in awhile though. I couldn't do 1 push up now even if I wanted to (really sick still)

Last Saturday was when I did a push up last. I can't do too many, my upper body strength isn't too great =( but I am working on it. I have heard of wall push ups and have done them, but it's been quite sometime. I'll throw in a couple pushups tonight before my run, shoot for maybe 10?

It's been probably a month. I can do like 15 girly push- ups, and like 45 wall push-ups.

Today I'll do 30 wall push-ups

Last time I tried to do a push up was probably 5 years ago.

I might be able to do 5-10

Yes, I have heard of a wall push-up

I'd like to try to do 20 push-ups today :)

I did wall push ups yesterday. I am very weak, so I can't do that many real ones in a row. Even the modified version, I can only do maybe 10. I am working on it though!
