Great arm toning exercise that will strengthen your core too!

Pushups with Alexander

This is me with my coach, Alexander. He’s tough but fair :-)

One of the best exercises to tone arms, chest and your core and increase your upper body strength is the push-up. Before you wince, here’s how to do it right, while keeping it simple.

Start: on your knees with 1 or 5 reps

Advance: once you can do 10 on your knees, try 5 regular style and work up to 10, 15 or 20 reps.

How often? Do push-ups 5 times per week as part of your Peter K workout

But don’t take it from me alone, FFR member, Dee, is living proof that you can start with 1 knee push-up and work up to 15 regular push-ups. That’s exactly what she did.

Dee

She also lost 15 llbs and competed in her 1st 5K with the Fit Friends’ Revolution!  She joined the FFR and changed her life, and so can you.  You’ll be hearing more about Dee and how she succeeded soon. Until then, 1 push-up……
