Our Get Healthy Challenge: Week 6

Welcome to Week 6 of Our Get Healthy Challenge! If you're just joining us, here is what you missed so far - so you can get all caught up. This series is running for the next six months with pro nutritionists, The GetReal Gurls. They are helping us make small changes every week that build upon each weekly task. Our challenge this week?


I know, sounds fun right? We thought we'd get an exercise challenge in here and it's the one exercise that will get you the overall body strengthening results we're all looking for: the push up. 

Why this one? Because you don't need any equipment; it requires no special skill; it's portable and adaptable (can even be done while watching your favourite TV episode!). Resistance exercises (aka muscle-builders) are key in maintaining weight and revving up your metabolic rate. We recommend you check out this quick video so you can see how to safely modify the standard push up to meet your needs:

Do It: 5 days this week, do as many push-ups as you can, 2 times during the day. 

Post It: Tell us how it went! Do you "feel the burn"?
