September PSL Challenge: Pushup

It's September - which means cooler weather is on the way and the beginning of Pumpkin Spice Latte season. So at Lean Girls Fitness, we're doing our own PSL Challenge - pushups, squats, and lunges. These moves will get you sculpted and lean so that you can enjoy a few pumpkin spice lattes without the guilt. 😉

We're beginning with pushups - starting with just 5 and working up to 50. Pushups are a great upper body exercise - they work your chest, arms, shoulders, back, and abs. To do a pushup, get in plank position with your hands slightly wider than shoulder width. Your feet should also be about shoulder width - you can move them slightly in if you prefer, but a wider base of support will give you greater stability for your pushup. Inhale as you bend your arms and lower your body towards the floor, pause, and exhale as you straighten your arms to lift your body. Your body should stay in a straight line from your head to your toes - don't lift your butt up in the air or let it drop down. If you need to, you can do a modified pushup on your knees. The same rules apply - keep your body straight and don't raise that butt in the air.   

Follow this PSL challenge to get toned this September! For more information on our online fitness program, visit leangirlsfitness.com.
