Welcome to the 100 pushups challenge! Last time, Sempai Terrence from WAIMA Myaree and Instructor Jake from Greenwood showed you how to perform a correct push-up position. Today, as a continuation, they will demonstrate how to complete 100 pushups in a day. This is part of a four-week challenge on ways to improve your core strength.

TRANSCRIPTION

G’day guys, Sempai Terrence here from WAIMA Myaree, and again joining me is Instructor Jake. Today we’re going to go through something continuing on our, sort of, home challenges, but now we’re going to push it into the office. Here’s what I want you to do, guys. In the office, I want you to be able to do 100 pushups. You might be thinking that, “Wow, 100 pushups, I won’t be able to do it,” but we’re going to break it down for you.

What I’m going to get you to do is, when you wake up in the morning, you just get up and you just start off with just 10 pushups. Very, very simple, should only take you 15 seconds, 15 seconds out of your day so far, not too bad. Then what I want you to do is, you’re going to have your breakfast, you’re going to go to work. At work, you’re there for seven, eight hours, every hour I want you to get down and just do 10 pushups. You won’t be working up too much of a sweat, but you will be working on great fitness and building up some muscle. What I want you to do too is, when you get home from work, do another 10 pushups. Suddenly, we’ve got 100 pushups in a day.

And try and get your office involved. What I want you to do in the office is, set up a board, a whiteboard, and put up there a pushup challenge, get everyone’s name on it, get them every hour. Someone in the office says, “Cool, it’s time to do some pushups,” everyone jumps down and does 10 pushups, the best to their ability. At the end of the week, or the end of the month, see how many pushups you’ve done in that month. Could be 5,000, that would be a huge amount.

What I’m going to get you to do is, video your office doing their pushup challenge and post it in the Comments section below. Remember, I’ve still got my four-way bridging challenge, should be pushing it out to about a minute now, that would be fantastic. Remember, post your comments below for that one, as well.

Great work team, we’ll see you next week in our next video. Thanks, guys.
