Push-Up Challenge

Push Up ChallengeSpartan Race has been holding 30 day challenges the past few months and have proven to be a great way to get the fitness community motivated to keep reaching for their health goals. Yesterday kicked off the 30 days of push-ups challenge; however, participants can accept this challenge anytime. The only rule is once you accept this challenge, you must commit to the entire 30 days. Previous challenges have includes 30 days of burpees and 30 days of squats. Last months squat challenge had 29.7K guests that “attended,” according to the challenge Facebook page.

They encourage participants to post picture and videos on their Facebook page, which include participants off all ages and fitness levels and some even showing variations to the traditional technique. These challenges are a creative way to encourage and invite a community to stay fit and keep working on their healthy habits. Push-ups are the perfect exercise to strengthen and tone your arms, shoulders, chest, and back. Depending on your form and the variation of the push-up, you can also target your core, glutes, calves, and quads and hamstrings. Doing push-ups increases endurance, metabolism, and blood circulation.
