Exercise with Andy: Living Room Workout 36

Reading Time: 2 minutes
The next Whole Life Challenge starts in:

Welcome to my living room workout series! Each week, I share a workout from my personal exercise routine — and then do it in real time so you can follow along. These workouts are optional and are simply one of the many ways you can accomplish your daily exercise.

Living Room Workout 36

This week’s workout is a push-up ladder. We’ll start in minute 1 with 2 push-ups. In minute 2, we’ll do 4 push-ups. In minute 3, we’ll do 6 push-ups. We’ll keep going in that pattern up to either 10 or 12 minutes.

If at any point, you can no longer finish the required number of push-ups within the minute, just do as many as you can. If you want to track how many you did, though, be sure to have a journal or paper nearby to write down your numbers.

Also, you can scale the push-up to your needs and ability level. You can do them from your knees, you can do them using a chair, or you can do them against a wall. Whatever works for you is the way to do it!

As always, no matter what fitness level you are right now, this workout probably sounds pretty simple, but trust me — that doesn’t mean it’s easy.
