Al W A lot harder than I expected but done!
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

Justin G Completed. I now modified it to 3down, 3hold, 3up, no hold at top right back into 3 down...
