Welcome to day 3 of the Get Moving Challenge. Did you go walking🚶♀️ yesterday? How did it go?
Today we’re going to be doing a few pushups and sit ups. Don’t worry, you’re not going to kill yourself!
It’s time for push ups and sit ups, your favorite! Now, don’t worry. We’re going to start small. You’re not doing 100 push ups today. We’re going to start with just five push ups and five sit ups.
If you can’t do that many, do 3. Or 2. Or 1. You just have to do it!
Just a quick note 📝on the proper form for push ups:
Keep your head and neck straight
Keep your shoulders and back stable
Keep your hands below your shoulders
Put pressure on the outside of your hands
Keep your hips and torso straight
Use a controlled tempo
Don’t freak out if you can’t do all these things. Imperfect action is still action.
Here’s a video to give you a visual representation: https://youtu.be/zF0jbubK_jU
Okay, time to get this done! Get down on the floor and do those push ups!
Remember, you’re trying to build a tiny habit here. If one is all you can do, that’s great. Do one today, one tomorrow, one the next day, and soon you’ll be able to do two. Build the habit and keep it going.
Tomorrow we’re going to be doing some bodyweight squats. Don’t worry if you don’t know how. I’ll show you.
