hitting the first few days all in one sitting, but by the time you reach the end of the week, you'll need to break the push-ups into various workouts throughout the day. Don't worry if it takes you all day to do it, but keep up the work! Important: Maintain the proper form for your push-up, including:
  • Tight core
  • Head relaxed
  • Neck and back aligned
  • Elbows tucked in tight
By Day 30, you're going to have a RIPPED upper body!
