    hadenn: Second night in a row trying these push-ups with headphones on playing my music! Helps having Smashing Pumpkins to keep me going....
    Clint21: Nice Nate! Got to love that. My middle girl is jumping on my back, which is ok for now while the reps are still low, but as the number increases each day and we get to the higher required reps, she will have to watch from the side:) Good to see so many participating.
    comptonc: Bragger!!! :)

THE BENEFITS OF PUSH-UPS:

Push-ups are one of the most common and basic exercises which can be performed. Whilst the chest area is the main muscle group worked during standard push-ups, they also work and define the abs, triceps, shoulders and torso areas. The beauty of push-ups is that they can be performed no matter where you are and are completely free - no expensive equipment needed or annual health club fees required! If you're aim is to develop a sculpted chest and shoulders, The 30 Day Push-up Challenge is for you!

THE TECHNIQUE:

1. Get into a plank style position with hands planted directly under the shoulders (slightly wider than shoulder width apart). Ground the toes into the floor to stabilize the bottom half of the body. Engage the abs and back so the body is neutral.
2. Begin to lower the body—back flat, eyes focused about three feet in front of you to keep a neutral neck—until the chest nearly touches the floor. (Note: Some experts say a push-up isn't a push-up unless the chest actually grazes the ground). Don't let the butt dip or stick out at any point during the move; the body should remain flat from head to toe all the way through the movement. Draw the shoulder blades back and down, while keeping the elbows tucked close to the body, so the upper arms form a 45-degree angle at the bottom of the push-up position.
3. Keeping the core engaged, exhale as you push back to the start position as explosively as possible without leaving the ground.

Below is a demonstration of how the exercise should be performed.

BE CAREFUL:

It is paramount that you listen to your body when doing push-ups to avoid and prevent injuries, especially as a beginner. For example, the wrists are one of the most vulnerable areas in your body. All your weight placed on your wrists puts the ligaments and tendons at risk of spraining. A sprained wrist can become inflamed, tender or bruised. If this is left untreated while you continue to complete push-ups, a sprained wrist can lead to a permanent loss of function. Your shoulder joints also are at risk of injury during push-ups. Overuse can lead to inflamed shoulder tendons; lifting your body weight improperly can cause the joint to dislocate. Lastly, your elbows are at risk of overuse injuries if you move from counter to knee push-ups before you’re ready.
