Victor B A great progression from the standard push up is to try it with one leg raised off the floor, it will engage your core and make it more challenging.
Philip S encouraged this.
Jason B At long last, I've done it. Could only manage 17 in a set at the start of June so I'm stoked!
Ann L I had 45 done and thought 5 more and I can do finish this challenge if I can just squeeze out 5 more. Done.
