30 Days to Summer Fit

There’s only one week left until summer after today! And with Father’s Day right around the corner, today’s challenge is all about nailing what is ultimately the manliest exercise out there: perfect your push-up.

To help you out, we asked celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak to break down the perfect push-up in 4 easy-to-follow steps. It’s all about form!

Day 23: Perfect your push-up

  1. Start with your arms straight, then flex your glutes and keep your core engaged.
  2. Slowly lower yourself down until your elbows are at 90 degrees. If you can go lower than 90 degrees, do it!
  3. Keep your elbows tight and your core engaged throughout.
  4. Pause briefly at 90 degrees (or lower) and then push back up in one strong motion to your starting point.

Do as many reps as you can until while keeping your form intact. As you improve, try adding one push-up to your set and build up slowly.

How many could you do? Let us know in the comments, or using #30DaysToSummerFit!
