What happened to summer?! Here in the UK we’re into August and still hardly any sunshine. I usually train outdoors but even the hardiest of fitness fanatics would have been discouraged by the downpoars we have been experiencing recently.
So I got in a quick workout indoors in my tiny flat and I thought I would share it with you. It’s useful for several reasons:
- it can be done in a very small space
- it can be done either as a finisher to blast the arms or as a workout on its own
- it is very quick if you don’t have much time
- it involves no equipment
- it is fun and challenging
You can make this workout as easy or as hard as you like. If the push up variations are too easy for you, choose a different variation or simply put your feet higher. I have poor overhead pressing strength (I’m working on it!!) so shoulder push ups are hard for me and I chose the easiest variation. You don’t have to sink to my level.
Whatever variation you choose, concentrate on getting the form as good as possible – use this as an opportunity to practise technique. And get 100 push ups done.
Quick and dirty push ups
10 burpees (with a push up and jump)
5 tricep push ups (arms stay close into sides, hands underneath shoulders)
5 shoulder push ups (the higher the feet, the harder they are)
5 rounds for time
