This push ups workout is a push ups challenge. It has 100 push ups and can be done in under 15 minutes. There are 5 rounds and each is the same. You move from one round to the next without taking a break, or as quickly as you can, to get finished the whole workout in as little time as possible, with keeping good form of course!

Each round has an exercise with 10 push ups followed by 10 burpees (each with a push up) and finishes with an ab exercise, which lets you recover just a bit before heading into the next round.  I have the next day “that was effective” (sore!) feeling in my arms and abs, which is always a great sign of a good workout.

Try to do as many regular push ups as you can and if you feel like you really can’t do any more, do them on your knees. I did some push ups in the 4th and 5th rounds from my knees. Make a good attempt to push yourself and do as many regular push ups as you can. Strength from push ups comes quickly, and it comes quicker from pushing yourself.  It’s exciting to see progress, so write down your reps in your fitness journal for reference, so you can look back and see your improvement.

The Russian twist abs exercise can be done weighted or with just bodyweight. I used a medicine ball.
