WDBJ7 Health Blog: February Challenge

When I was in Phoenix, Arizona with my friends, I tried to do push-ups. The problem is, I have upper-body problems. Like, I am unrealistically weak. I remember when I was forced to do weight lifting sessions for Football in High School (shocking! I did play) and I could barely lift the bar during bench press exercises.

Yup, painfully weak. So over this past year I focused a lot on my lower body but little on my upper body. A stroke a genius ensued and my February Challenge was born.

I will do at least 10 push-ups a day. Each day I will gain 1 pushup.

Feb 1st - 10

Feb 2nd - 11

and so on…

I got the idea from a coworker who tried to persuade me do a ‘squat challenge’ in December. Same format as above but instead of push-ups a person squats throughout the month.

Okay, I know I posted this a little late but who is on board with me?

Lets Push(up) through this month so we can March to April.

On April 20th, WDBJ7 is hosting the Blue Ridge Marathon. You can run a whole marathon, half-marathon or join a 5 person team. I hope to see some of you guys out there. Details HERE!

for now
