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. πŸ™‚ The burn is quick and relentless, but we need a sexy upper body for the warm weather!!

Have you ever tried decline push ups?

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!! πŸ™‚

YES! One of my favs for sure. Coincidentally, I’ll be using the step for my sculpt class tonight and definitely going to through these into the mix!

Decline push-ups are pretty much the hardest ones for me for some reason!!!

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.

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

Ooops! Can you tell I’m tired? Here’s what I meant to say: Admittedly, these have been part of my workout routines, but I’ve been too chicken to do them. I will get up with an exercise ball under my hips to do pushups…but that’s a lot easier than these.

ha no worries Leslie! The exercise ball definitely helped a ton!
