I am going to look at this different today. I have strength training today which will include push-ups, but today I will take this challenge a step further and do 2-3 more sets of push-ups, and will do my abs.

Wall pushups are part of my 3 x week ST routine...no situps until *someday* I correct my hernia, which is waiting in line behind my gall bladder...sheesh! :-)

Happy Thursday to you!

Your challenge today is to get in 2-3 sets each in the areas of Push-Ups and Crunches.

You can adjust these exercises to suit your fitness level. Some examples are:

Push-Ups:

*Wall Push-Ups
*"Girl" push-ups with bent knees
*Standard Push-Ups
*Crossed Ankle Push-Ups

Crunches:

*Standard Crunches
* crunches with resistance bands
*Crunches on a stability ball
*Reverse Crunches

Look under the Spark Fitness area for modified exercises for each of these items.

Have a FANTASTIC Thursday everyone!



There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
