Even the kiddies enjoyed themselves.temple square and enjoy the amazing blue sky. If you are ever in Utah you should pay this pretty place a visit.
My family is just as camera happy as I am.
We finished the afternoon at my brothers house reading the Guinness book of world records, and playing with some hula hoops. Turns out hula hooping is a total core workout! How long has it been since you've hula hooped it up?
The record for non stop push ups is 10,507.
Push ups done in one hour? 3,877
One armed push ups done in 5 hours? 8,794 Seriously...can you even imagine that?
and my favorite...
The number of push ups done with hands on raw eggs? 312 How is that even possible?
(Facts found HERE.)
One thing I always test with my clients is the number of push ups they can do. Push ups are an AWESOME indication of upper body strength. It allows both me and my client to see how they are progressing. Take this push up strength test, and see how you measure up!
PUSH UP STRENGTH TEST
- Begin in push up position with your hands shoulder width apart, palms flat, on your toes. (You can modify this by dropping to your knees, but you have to be sure your hips are in line with your body. No butts up in the air!)
- Do a push up so your elbows reach a full 90 degree angle.
- Push back up to starting position.
This counts as one rep. Do as many reps in a row without stopping as you can.
This chart will help you determine your strength levels.
Do you hate push ups? Love them? How many can you do?? You should learn to love them if you don't because they are the BEST upper body workout. They work that core like crazy too!
