Although it is “only” ten press up repititions, don't be fooled into thinking the slow motion press-up challenge is only for beginners.
The slow concentric and eccentric movement coupled with the isometric hold at the bottom will put a lot of tension on your muscle fibres, making this a tough challenge.
Concentrate on perfect technique and maintain perfect posture. Take 3 seconds to descend, hold 3 seconds, and push yourself up for 3 seconds.
Do 10 Slow Motion Push-Ups. Challenge rules
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
“2 seconds down, 1 second hold and 3 seconds up. Only 10 times and its almost as hard as a quick 50 pushups. Next goal is 3 seconds up, 3 seconds down and 3 seconds hold at top and bottom. 10 pushups spread over 2 minutes.”
