How to Build Push Up Reps

Starting at the bottom of the metaphorical pyramid, you’ll do 1 push up, followed by standing up. You can alternatively rest in a plank or child’s pose or roll over like these girls:

Next, you’ll do 2 push ups followed by a rest.

You’ll keep going, 3, 4, 5, 6… until you’ve reached the top of the pyramid. For the first pyramid, you could go to level 6, or level 10 and then go back down. Level 20 is a huge goal to reach later on.

Now that you’re at the top there’s only one way to go, back down. Begin with the largest number of push-ups and rest, going back down in numbers until you reach the bottom of the pyramid.

As you build stamina, you can up the size of your pyramid and go to 12 or 20, or even 30 if you get really good!

You can try it with friends, or maybe it’s time for a vacation to Cambodia!
