WAHM Workout: Push Up Patrol

Happy Wednesday! This week is flying by, and I feel like I have so much to talk about but I’m going to instead default to a sweat-tastic workout I wanted to share!

I’ve been really working on my arm strength lately, as well as just my bodyweight strength. Is that even a thing? It made sense in my head. You know what I mean though, being able to do exercises with just your bodyweight. Like…pushups!

My goal the past couple weeks has been to complete 2 sets of 5 pushups throughout the day while I’m home. The other day, Adam challenged me to instead do 1 set of 5, then 1 set of 7. And you know what? After doing 5 for several weeks, 7 didn’t seem so bad! And I’m talking real, big girl pushups. It’s amazing how much better you feel physically when you can do a simple exercise such as pushups.

Here’s a fun but challenging at-home workout you can do to work on those pushups! It also includes leg work to get those quads and booty in shape. I’ve been loving at-home workouts lately, although I still prefer hitting the gym.

For this workout, you’ll complete it twice. And of course, alter the weight as needed.

Let me know if you try it!

Do you do pushups often? Can you perform them successfully? Do you like bodyweight exercises?

    I hate push ups, lol. Literally those and mountain climbers are my downfall. We all have exercises we hate, right?! Anyway, this looks like my booty will be on fire ha. I’m saving it for post baby!!

    Love the push-up challenge! I’m trying to do something similar with planks. It’s so easy to fit that kind of thing in. When I remember anyway lol
