Weekly Wednesday Workout: Decline Pushups

Today we are working on our upper body!! Just in time for those Spring dresses!


So we have done several kinds of push ups: Walkout Push ups (my fav!), Tricep Push ups & Push ups with a twist. These are just like regular push ups except your legs are elevated. This is one of those exercises you can do anywhere in the house, just keep in mind the higher you go the harder the push up! I personally tried these on the bottom step and I am pretty sure it is going to take a while to move up the ladder. :) The burn is quick and relentless, but we need a sexy upper body for the warm weather!!

Have you ever tried decline push ups?

  2. Haven’t done these in years and another one not too sure with my back, but definitely need to at the very least incorporate more modified pushups into my routine again. Happy Wednesday!! :)

  9. I don’t have the strength yet for these but given that heavy weights are off the table I’m going to have to work up to this.

  11. I don’t really have a favorite color…but my wardrobe is definitely full of pinks and purples. If I decorated with those, my husband might go crazy. As far as what I like, I love to look at pictures full of neutrals, but in the end, I love to have a house full of lots of colors
