The 100 Push Up Challenge is a weekly challenge running all Year. Each week we have a new challenge with a new variation for you to try, progressively harder than the ones before.
Yo yo yo!
Week 14 of the 100 push up challenge is here, and this week we are bringing another elevated push up into the mix.
Last week we introduced elevated push ups the a neutral or regular hand position.
This week we are going to make it a little harder, but I'll get into that below . . .
If you haven't been keeping up with the challenges, don't worry:
Check out last week's challenge here. And . . .
You can find ALL of the challenges on the 100 Push Up Challenge Page here.
But that can wait . . . First let's get into this week's challenge . . .
The 100 Push Up Challenge Week 14
Set 1 - 20 Raised Pike Push Ups
Set 2 - 20 Raised Push Ups Push Ups
Set 3 - 20 Stability Ball Push Ups Push Ups
Set 4 - 20 Deep Push Ups Push Ups
Set 5 - 20 Spiderman Push Ups Push Ups
This weeks new variation, the raised pike, is a great example of how you can mix up your push ups.
Finding new ways to challenge yourself can seem quite daunting, but actually it is quite easy.
A lot of the time you can increase the difficulty with simple changes in hand position.
How To Do Raised Pike Push Ups
Im sure you have already worked out that this is basically a pike push up . . .
Get your feet up on the sofa, or a chair, or bench.
Like a pike push up, you want to keep your legs straight and walk your hands in a bit so you are almost vertical.
The closer to vertical that you are, the harder that it will be. Quality push ups trump your angle, so it may be better to start slightly further out.
Lower yourself towards the ground and push straight back up.
Now just get those reps in!
Never Miss A Challenge!
Over the next few weeks we are really going to be upping our push up game, as I'm sure you've already noticed.
If you aren't keeping up with the challenges you WILL fall behind.
All you need to do to stay in the loop is join the challenge and I will send it to you directly every week.
