The Challenge

The #FFPushUp Challenge is easy. Complete 31 push-ups (or more!) each day in the month of July. As you build strength each day, it will get easier. Remember, form is important! Here’s a few tips to do a perfect push up every time.

  • Keep your back nice and flat
  • Create a long spine by keeping your head in neutral alignment
  • Plant your hands planted firmly on the ground
  • When lowering down, keep your hands in line with your chest

Watch FitFluential Ambassador Regie Simmons from Fitbodiez below for step-by-step instructions on how to do the perfect push-up. Plus, get some great push-up variation and modification ideas for beginners and advanced push-uppers.

 

 

Don’t forget to keep yourself on track by recording your push-ups every day with our #FFPushUp Tracking Calendar!

Disclaimer- Please consult your physician before beginning this or any exercise program to ensure you are healthy enough to complete the exercise. Work at your own pace and start off slow.

  1. My favorite modification is tricep pushups!

  2. As far as favorites, I’ll be excited when my core strength is sufficient that I can do a “traditional” pushup w/o being on my knees!

  3. Deborah M Dera says:

    Hahahh! At first I thought this was a joke. Lots of pushup training in my future, I see!

  4. Bosu push-ups…they are my push-up staple. I hate doing them the regular way!

  5. I’m totally in! Love this!

  6. i’m actually much stronger in a tricep pushup than regular pushup but I can only really do 5-7 from my toes until i have to drop to my knees. bosu i need to try! those might kill me!

  7. I am excited about this challenge! I am hoping for stronger arms to help get me through my half marathon.

  8. I will be doing a modified push-up, but I will also be attempting to do several regular push-ups each day as well. Get my upper body strength up.

  9. If I’m doing 31 then on my knees, please!

  10. I’m in! Love push-up challenges!

  11. It is all I can do to do them regular. One day hope to do handstand ones that my trainer tried to get me to do. Haha

  12. Just plain ole push-ups for this gal!

  13. Sabrina says:

  18. I need to modify the pushups, but I hope to do them unmodified by the end of July.

  19. I like standard push ups hands down!

  20. Connie Backensto says:

    Just heard about the push up challenge this morning so I’ve got some catching up to do. I did 48 during my morning workout today, it won’t be long until I’m caught up.
    I so enjoyed the Squat Challenge, logging in 3,780 squats. I’ve decided to keep that challenge in my daily routine.
    For those of you out there who think it sounds like a lot, by the middle of the month you will be adding to your daily pushups/squats so keep it up.

  21. I’m still a beginner who does push ups from my knees but I’ll get to the real thing.

  22. ok, let’s get these swimmer’s arm ready for action!!

  23. I want to work on my push ups, thanks for the challenge!

  24. Excited to get my push up on! I’m a couple days behind so I’m gonna start right now!

  25. My favorite pushups are decline pushups with my feet on a ball!

  26. I love handstand push ups! They make me feel like a ninja!

  27. Another vote for tricep pushups! Love those when I’m doing arms.

  28. Plank pushup

  29. I’m a full pushup gal – chest to the floor! For years I thought that I was physically incapable of doing so. Now I can do hundreds in a day!

  30. Love me some spiderman pushups!

  31. tricep pushups!

  32. Favorite pushup variation or modification are pushups against the wall. Easier on my wrists.
