The 22 Push Up Challenge follows last year’s ALS Ice Bucket Challege where participants had a bucket of ice water poured over them, which raised over $100 million for the ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) Association.
Not surprisingly I was nominated pretty quickly by a friend, but thought I’d do a slightly different take and try and encourage people to be more adventurous with their push ups (also known as press ups).
Press ups are a fantastic exercise for the core, shoulders, arms and back, but bog standard ‘regular’ press ups can get a little boring sine they’re so repetitive and simple, which is not to say they’re easy – they do take quite a lot of upper body strength!
I have to admit even I started to run out of ideas so they do get a little silly and amusing towards the final few.
All the individual and short (around 15 seconds) videos have been uploaded to my YouTube Exercise Demo Playlist here.
Have you taken part in the challenge? What’s your favourite or least favourite press up variation? How many can you do?!
