Got 5 Minutes to Spare?!?!
When you don’t have time for a full workout but you have a few minutes to spare, make push-ups your go-to exercise; Yes, I'm serious! Push-ups specifically target your chest muscles, but they also do an amazing job of defining your triceps, shoulders and core muscles; boy do I love those key words.... defining, couldn't we all use a little definition, no?
Easier version: Perform the standard version but with your knees on the ground.
Easiest version: From a standing position, step back three or four foot lengths from a wall. Place your hands on the wall letting your heels lift slightly. Bend your elbows, and lower your forehead toward the wall.
Harder version: Perform the standard version but with your feet elevated on a step, or place the toes of one foot on the heel of your other foot.Whichever version you choose, try two or three sets of 10 repetitions on alternating days gradually increasing the number of repetitions. I've been doing this about everyday in the morning and just before bed, and I can feel/see results already! Trust me on This... get up off the couch, out of that chair, and down from wherever you are.... Start Pumping!
