DalyDose of Fitness: 5 Pushups (w/ Video)


I teach a Spin/Sculpt class at RPM Fitness Studio on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:30 am.  We do Spinning until about 10:30 and then we move over to the other studio to work on the sculpting portion.  We usually only get about 20 minutes in there, so I’ve been trying to come up with ways to get workouts done in short amounts of time.  For example, we had tried working up to 100 pushups by doing them in sets of 20, but we don’t have time to run through a circuit 5 times.  I decided to try these pushups out and I debuted them to the class a couple of weeks ago and I’m happy to say that people were in pain the day after.  Fear not, for you too can feel the pain of JD’s “5” Style Pushup.
