1. push yourself to get up before the rest of the world - start with 7am, then 6am, then 5:30am. go to the nearest hill with a big coat and a scarf and watch the sun rise.

2. push yourself to fall asleep earlier - start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. wake up in the morning feeling re-energized and comfortable.

3. erase processed food from your diet. start with no lollies, chips, biscuits, then erase pasta, rice, cereal, then bread. use the rule that if a child couldn’t identify what was in it, you don’t eat it.

4. get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. fry tomatoes and mushrooms in real butter and garlic, fry an egg, slice up a fresh avocado and squirt way too much lemon on it. sit and eat it and do nothing else.

5. stretch. start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. roll your head. stretch your fingers. stretch everything.

6. buy a 1L water bottle. start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in a day, then try drinking it twice.

7. buy a beautiful diary and a beautiful black pen. write down everything you do, including dinner dates, appointments, assignments, coffees, what you need to do that day. no detail is too small.

8. strip your bed of your sheets and empty your underwear draw into the washing machine. put a massive scoop of scented fabric softener in there and wash. make your bed in full.

9. organise your room. fold all your clothes (and bag what you don’t want), clean your mirror, your laptop, vacuum the floor. light a beautiful candle.

10. have a luxurious shower with your favourite music playing. wash your hair, scrub your body, brush your teeth. lather your whole body in moisturiser, get familiar with the part between your toes, your inner thighs, the back of your neck.

11. push yourself to go for a walk. take your headphones, go to the beach and walk. smile at strangers walking the other way and be surprised how many smile back. bring your dog and observe the dog’s behaviour. realise you can learn from your dog.

12. message old friends with personal jokes. reminisce. suggest a catch up soon, even if you don’t follow through. push yourself to follow through.

14. think long and hard about what interests you. crime? sex? boarding school? long-forgotten romance etiquette? find a book about it and read it. there is a book about literally everything.

15. become the person you would ideally fall in love with. let cars merge into your lane when driving. pay double for parking tickets and leave a second one in the machine. stick your tongue out at babies. compliment people on their cute clothes. challenge yourself to not ridicule anyone for a whole day. then two. then a week. walk with a straight posture. look people in the eye. ask people about their story. talk to acquaintances so they become friends.

16. lie in the sunshine. daydream about the life you would lead if failure wasn’t a thing. open your eyes. take small steps to make it happen for you.

I can already hear the groans, but I’m telling you once and for all: the best exercise for anyone to learn & do is the push-up.

Regularly adding pushups to your workout won’t just strengthen your chest. It’s a total body exercise that will also shape your shoulders, triceps, legs, glutes and your entire core. Working all those muscles at once torches tons of calories and get your heart rate up.

The one thing I hear over and over from women is that they can’t do pushups. But the reason they can’t, is that they don’t or are afraid too. I get it: sucking at something sucks. But NO ONE starts out being amazing. You get better with practice & time. It took me years before I could do even just one pushup. And months before I could do 10 in a row. It took time and practice, and getting ‘cool’ with sucking at them. It’s okay if you can’t bust out pushups like a marine; you start where you are. 

This post is designed to give you a basis on how to work up to perfect pushups and how to keep improving them no matter what your level.

Note: I don’t call them “girly” push-ups. I really, really wish everyone would stop calling them that as well. It makes it okay for women to stay there without challenging themselves and makes men who can’t do a basic push-up hesitant to try the modified version. For once and for all: they are modified push-ups. NOT “girly” pushups.

FORM FOR ALL PUSHUPS:

Hands should be shoulder width or wider than shoulder width apart. Your eye line should fall in front of your fingertips and you should be able to see a few feet in front of you without straining your neck.

Engage your upper back, shoulders, and arms to PUSH your body weight off the floor, then slowly lower it back down. Think about pushing the floor away from you instead of lifting from it, as though you were on your back lifting an object off you. Pause, then push back to the starting position. Keep your core braced the entire time.

You don’t need to do them fast: in fact slower requires more strength and control than power. Go your own pace: speed comes later on.

If your hips sag at any point during the exercise, your form has been broken. When this happens, consider that your last repetition and end the set.

The following is a list of different kinds of pushups that you can try, in order from easiest to hardest. If you have issues with your joints, you may find some versions easier than others.

Challenge - Complete 2-3 sets of 12-15 pushups.

1. Find the form of push-up that you can complete 12-15 reps of, starting with the wall pushup and progressing down the list. If you cannot complete 12-15 wall pushups, that’s your goal before you move on. Complete as many as you can until form is broken, until you hit 12-15.

2. Try to add in 1-3 reps of the next hardest version at the beginning of each set. You can start with just one rep of the harder version if you need to. Each workout, try to add in 1-2 more reps of the more challenging version until you’re able to complete a full set.

For example; you might start with 3 modified push-ups, followed by 12 wall push-ups. Then add 1-2 modified push-ups per workout until you’re doing the whole set in that position. Once there, try adding 1-2 basic pushups followed by modified until you’re doing all basic etc… Work your way up in difficulty. 

Remember: even the fittest of females may not be able to do a push-up. If you’re upper body strength is VERY weak, start by pushing off against a wall and that’s PERFECTLY FINE. 

1. EASIEST: WALL PUSH-UPS

image

Stand facing a wall and ex­tend your arms in front of you. Lean forward slightly and place your palms against the surface. Bend your elbows until your nose nearly touches the wall. Push back out to start. That’s one rep. Do two to three sets of 15.

Mastered it? Try pushing off the wall with a little force (explosive push-ups). Start in the push-up position, elbows bent & push off about 12 inches from the wall. Catch yourself before slowly lowering yourself back to the starting position.

2. MODIFIED PUSHUP

image

A. Keep all the form of the basic pushup, but bend your knees at a 90 degree angle. Keep your feet together or crossed.

B. Make sure to keep your abs tight and your back straight.

Tip: Once you master 12-15 of these, come up on to your feet in between pushups (basic pushup position). Lower back on to your knees for the pushup part to complete the modified pushup.

3. BASIC PUSH-UPS

image

A. Get into plank position, with your hands under but slightly outside of your shoulders.

B. Lower your body until your chest nearly touches the floor.

Tip: Use dumbbells like the ones shown if it hurts to put your hands on the floor.

4. INCLINE PUSHUP

image

Tip: This is great off a counter, bench or staircase too. The lower your surface, the harder the move will be.

5. STACKED FEET PUSHUP

image

Tip: You can also try to draw your knee in to your elbow, while lifting the leg off the floor, like a spiderman push-up.

6. DECLINE PUSHUP

image

Tip: No bench? Use your stairs or couch. Any elevated (and secure) surface will do.

Crazy Tip: Try putting your feet on a wall behind you. You can climb the wall as high as you like to (and yes, I’ve seen push-up handstands done this way).

7. FEET ON STABILITY BALL PUSHUP

image

Tip: This is a good alternative to the modified push-up, but it does require a bit more core strength to keep your balance. If your core is strong, but you need to strengthen your upper body, this is a move that you can transition to from the modified push-up. The closer the stability ball is to your chest, the easier the move will be. (and vice versa! Keep your toes on the ball for a harder workout).

8. STABILITY BALL PUSHUP (HARDEST)

image

Tip: Tighten your core on this one! You’ll need it for balance! Spread your fingers on the ball and squeeze the ball itself as you pushup.

So cute. She was planning on kissing him on the cheek while he was looking the other way and he turns just as she kisses him. So it ended up on his lips instead. He really didn’t know haha. But it’s cute how it all turned out. And she was all shy.
